    Default Wifi can not be enabled while in airplane mode at kitkat

    I am trying to enable wifi while I am on airplane mode but kiktat does allow it.
    Do you suggest any work around solution or any app that disables the mobile network and work for kitkat?

    Thanks!

    Welcome.
    Airplane mode disables all mobile connections by design.

    I can do that on all my devices, I think. Have you tried airplane node first and then turning on WiFi?

    Not an app, but you can disable mobile data in settings.

    If you need an app to switch things on / off try Power Toggles.
    But enabling WiFi when in airplane mode should work. All my family do that when travelling and with different phones and android version (from 2.3. to 4.4.4.)

    You can try an app called WiFi Auto Switch on Google Play that automatically turns on wifi when airplane mode gets activated
