My iPhone has developed an illness. I cannot put it to sleep. The only thing I can do is change the settings and put it to sleep using a screen command. When I do that I cannot wake it up unless I plug it into a power source. I have not actually tried this, but my research suggests this will work.
For several reasons I do not want to replace the phone until I return home from our current travels. I do not want to turn the phone off on the plane because when we land in Orlando it will be very late at night and I will need to call the hotel shuttle. It will be obnoxious to find an electrical outlet, and I am not even 100% sure it will work.
Once, several years ago, I put my cell phone in my purse and forgot to turn it off. The plane did not crash. I am wondering if I dare just put the phone in airplane mode, turn off the ringer and stick it in my purse. My son-in-law, the pilot, says it will not do anything to the plane. He, however, is military not civilian.
Is this something anyone would dare to do?
