Since today, while it had been Woking completely fine for almost 2 years, my phone won't detect any normal WiFi network while on airplane mode with WiFi activated. It will scan, find some hot-spot, find for 5 seconds another network before it disappears etc.
I already tried rebooting, safe mode and resetting network settings.
Thanks for your help!
Now it's showing other networks, but only half of what it can detect when it's not in airplane mode.
Of course, my network is still invisible in said mode.
No, not in recent phones, if you turn the WiFi while in airplane mode.
We have 3 phones at home plus one tablet, and all of them can have the WiFi on even after you put airplane mode (actually, the tablet is always in airplane mode + WiFi)
Even my old Samsung galaxy ace something that run on android 4 could do that.
