Eddy just wants to listen to music or stream on his phone without being disturbed. How can he turn off his phone without losing internet? Leo says that he can maybe turn it off in phone settings. He could turn on call forwarding. *72. Input another number, and it will forward all calls to that number, like a landline or a Google Voice. Then *73 to turn it off. He can also try turning on airplane mode, and then re-enable WiFi for data only.
