    Yes you can. Airplane mode turns off all cellular radios. It is useful on a plane where you cannot keep your cell radios on. It basically makes your iPhone an iPod Touch. WiFi WILL work with Airplane mode on.

    Airplane Mode turns off ALL transmissions including WiFi. However, do what the OP said and turn WiFi back "on". WiFi can only be used on aircraft that have WiFi and not all carriers have this ability.

    The main thing is making sure that data roaming is turned off.

    WiFi is your international data friend however!

    It does and then you can manually override just the wifi part by turning just that on.
