    That is the correct way, but SOME airlines have their own policies, and require it to be completely off, although most do not, and some attendants might be in a bad mood, i had 1 problem, i showed her that all connections were off, and she said" That is not airplane mode, Unless you show me a specific airplane mode, i need you to power it off completely."
    Needless to say, I turned it off completely.

    your phone does not interfere with the avionics like they might have you believe, more like they dont want everyone on cells during take off and landing in case of an emergency, you cant get a reception at 33000 feet anyway so there is no way a cell signal can cause interference

    Airlines say that they don't want to risk the chance of interference (same reason why no electronics can be used on take off and landing). I think the real reason why you can't have them on during the flight is because people would become violent if they were forced to sit next to some cell phone talkers for 4 hours.

    Last time I was on a plane to Amsterdam the flight attendant told everyone to switch off their phone even if it had a "flight mode". (I kept mine switched on, I live life on the edge)

    Manage connections should be with the rest of the icons, it may be hidden so make sure that show all is checked and then it should appear with every other icon

    my 8100 says turn wireless off. That is what I use when flying and we have not crashed yet so I assume it is working.
