"Cellular Network Not Found" is that annoying message I get when out of range of my carrier, but what will I do if I am abroad and don't plan on using roaming? I don't want this message popping into my face every 10 seconds. How will I use phone's camera if this annoying message will keep on persisting? Switch "Airplane Mode" you say? Well what if I decide to access internet through Wi-Fi? Still I will probably see this popup.

Is there a way to disable annoying message without enabling "Airplane Mode" still being able to take camera shots and surf the internet?

Android 2.3.5

On most phones you can still enable Wi-Fi while in airplane mode. In fact, many airlines now have Wi-Fi in flight. Airplane mode might be a more viable option than you think ;) –  jlehenbauer Jun 7 '12 at 21:36

At least with Cyanogenmod it's: Enable airplane mode, then switch back on wifi (or bluetooth) –  ce4 Jun 8 '12 at 5:09
    
I believe it was on my Stock Sense as well. –  jlehenbauer Jun 8 '12 at 11:08

Turn on airplane mode then turn on wifi is standard on the devices I've seen. –  Michael Kohne Jun 8 '12 at 11:52

You can turn off just the cell radio by using the Phone Info feature: dial *#*#4636#*#* and press Turn off radio.
