    I have a Samsung Galaxy S7 that is in airplane mode. I lost the phone. Is there some way to turn off airplane mode so that I can call the phone and have it ring?

    Thanks in advance for any help you can give. It's much appreciated.

    You can\t turn airplane mode off remotely because ... it's in airplane mode. It won't hear the command to turn it off. (Receivers radiate signal too, so they're off.)

    Welcome to Android Central! Was wi-fi turned on in Airplane Mode? If so, you should still be able to locate it using Find My Device or Find My Mobile. Otherwise, you'll just have to hope somebody finds the phone and contacts you based on any emergency information you entered into it. If you didn't enter any emergency contact information, then looks like you'll have to do a remote wipe and find a new phone.
