    I use my phone in remote areas with no recharge capability. Airplane mode saves power. I like to listen to FM Radio. Unfortunately, my current app says it must have Airplane Mode Off to tune. Anybody know of an FM app that works with Airplane Mode? THANKS

    I think that that would be impossible in principle.

    Some phones have a true FM Radio, though some carriers may disable it - disgracefully in my opinion - so that you have to use an FM Radio app, and therefore data.

    On that note a lot of these devices have true FM radios built in so you might be better served to establish if yours has a radio and then how to enable it. Maybe you can contact your carrier, maybe there's a work around for your device but I'm going to guess that airplane mode disabled all radio communication. i.e. data, cellular and normal radio. It may work in areas with no cell connection but that's not the same as turning off all your radios.

    My LG V30 has a built in FM radio chip. The software requires airplane mode to be off. This does not surprise me. The purpose of airplane mode is to disable all the radios so that they do not interfere with airplane electronics.
