iPhone Tip: Enabling WiFi in Airplane Mode

I’ve decided to leave my laptop at home for an upcoming trip to Europe, so I’ll be using my iPhone for Internet acesss. I looked at AT&T’s international data plans, but none of them look apealling, so I’ll be sticking with WiFi.

To make sure I’m not charged roaming fees I’m going to keep my phone in airplane mode, but the problem is that automatically disables WiFi.

Well, as it turns out, the workaround is painfully simple… just turn it back on (duh). The WiFi slider automatically toggles to off when you enable airplane mode, but you can turn it back on without disabling it.

On a side note, I wrote this entire post on the subway using WordPress for iPhone in offline mode. Pretty cool, huh?
