Learn to Use Airplane Mode on your Galaxy Note 8
Airplane mode is a handy way to turn off the cellular and data connections on your Note 8 device. As the name suggests, you can toggle this mode when you fly in an airplane, so you need to understand that Airplane mode will turn off connections on your device, including cellular data, Wi-Fi, as well as Bluetooth. That means you will not receive any calls, but you can turn Wi-Fi or Bluetooth back on again and connect to a Wi-Fi network or device while Airplane mode is enabled.
However, Airplane mode isn’t just for when you’re on an airplane, but for all those places poor cell coverage areas and your device is doing its best to keep on searching for a better signal. You know that it cannot go on like that forever and this will affect the already limited battery juice, maybe even sooner than anticipated.
And believe it or not, toggling Airplane mode can sometimes clear network bugs so if you haven’t tried it up to now, it could be your key tip for troubleshooting your Galaxy Note 8 when its mobile data is not working. The truth is that knowing the reason why your Note 8’s mobile data connection is not working takes some troubleshooting and tricks such as restarting your device or reseating the SIM Card might not always work, while this one does.
Note: Remember that Airplane mode may be called Flight mode on your device, so don’t get confused by this different name. It is the same thing, I can assure you of that.
