Yes. Airplane mode (flight mode) only disables your phone's signal transmitting functions, not the functions that don't require a signal to function. Your alarm will still work.

With Tasker you are able to achieve this. The Tasks can be defined as e.g. Wifi on and there are different trigers for those Tasks. Amoung many others, time can be a trigger.

I'd recommend Llama as you've wished for a free app. Further more this is a location based profile. This can not only do what you have said but also do what you want based on your location.

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 ;)

You can press the Airplane mode and then enable only WiFi. So your mobile data connection to your carrier is off (can't receive calls/SMS) but your online and have a internet connection. But if you want to appear offline for certain online-apps like WhatsApp or Facebook you have to manually close these apps or log out or something...

Notes: The answer is tested on a rooted Android 4.2.1 running Tasker v4.6u3m and Secure Settings v1.3.6. Secure Settings may needs to be installed as a System app (it has the provision under SYSTEM+ in its GUI). Since you're already aware of making profiles, tasks, and actions, I would come to point: Make a profile having time as the context, and ...

I use my mobile like this when I travel. So first turn on Airplane mode and then activate WIFI (for example in notification panel). At the end you will have Airplane mode, WIFI activated, and all other connection deactivated.

As @Jasir says. Your alarm will still work in Airplane mode. Be careful as there is another setting on your phone. Clock > Alarms > Menu > Settings > 'Alarm in silent mode' You will need this ticked if you put your phone in silent (saving more battery) and still want the alarm to go off!

You can use AutomateIt to enable/disable airplane mode on a schedule. This may be easier than finding a custom alarm clock.

Several, I'm sure. There's the simple Airplane Mode Widget for one. Then there's the way more complicated, but way more powerful Tasker for another (since it's capable of creating widgets to execute any of the tasks you define). Oh, wait, the title said widget, but the question says status bar. On my S3 (also on 4.1.1), I can pull down the notifications, ...

As you probably already correctly guessed, that's device dependent. On my old HTC Wildfire (aka Buzz) I was able to switch of GSM radio separately – on my Motorola Milestone 2 (aka Droid 2) I am not. What always seems to work is a work-around: Switching to airplane mode, and just enabling WiFi again (and Bluetooth, if you need it). To not end up "playing ...

There are multiple automation tools which most likely can do this for you. Some of them, especially in connection with your real concern, are listed in my answer to What is Cell standby and how can I keep it from eating my battery?. Aside from that, and you might wish to check helpers like JuiceDefender, Easy Battery Saver, and GO Battery Saver & ...

If you had an internet connection when you took the photos, they'll get backed up, assuming Auto Backup was switched on. Otherwise, the photos will get backed up only if someone finds it and switches on the internet connection. Given that you lost the phone in a flight, chances are high that you can find it by contacting the airport authorities.

An indirect possibility would be using tasker, which has the capability of performing actions "on device start" (amongst many others). So you could setup a profile that says: "on device start" → "set airplane mode on". Other automation apps like llama might have the same capability. Note however that the action can of course only be executed as soon as the ...

In your Dialer / Phone app, enter *#*#4646#*#* Select Phone Information Select Turn off radio Or use an app like Cell Radio ShutOff. Note also that you can turn Wi-Fi back on during Airplane Mode (though it can definitely be annoying to have it turned off in the first place).

I had the exact same problem since yesterday, but my mobile is Galaxy S2,this post was the solution: http://www.inflightmagazine.co/?p=351 I am not sure if it will work on galaxy s, but wouldn't harm to give it a try The author refers to two steps to solve the problem, I would add the following steps between Step 1 and Step 2 Install BusyBox from the ...

One of the features of Battery Widget Reborn's notification is buttons to toggle WiFi, Bluetooth, Sync, Mobile Data, and Airplane mode. I got it for the battery usage analysis, but this extra feature is a really nice touch. Now I only need pull down my notification shade to access these important toggles. (Although, yes, with the new settings panel in Jelly ...

On the original Kindle Fire Airplane mode does not seem to exist, but you can turn off wireless using these directions: Tap the Quick Settings (the Gear) icon in the top right hand corner of the Home screen. Tap Wi-Fi. Ensure Wireless Networking switch is in the off position. On the new Kindle Fire you can enable airplane mode by doing the following: ...

GPS is, generally speaking, a one-way system. Whether your phone powers up the GPS chip and starts receiving signals or not doesn't matter because the phone is not broadcasting, the satellites are, and you can't turn off the satellites! That's likely why it's excluded from airplane mode. If you'd still like to have it shut off when you enter airplane mode ...

This problem usually occurs when, for whatever reason, your phone is set to only use WiFi to make calls in the call preferences menu. On Android, with Jelly Bean upgrade, some apps will alter this setting apparently. Here's the fix. Enjoy! From home screen, access Apps/Settings/More Settings/Wifi Calling (Press the part to the right of the on/off button to ...

If you either go to airplane mode each night, you might want to try out some automating app like Timeriffic (free) or Tasker (~EUR 5) which could switch on airplane mode at night, and automatically switch it off in the morning. This way you do not get stuck with a grayed-out menu item -- and in case you do and need to get out of it, you may just need to play ...

It looks like you'll have to do a factory reset.

Gentle Alarm does that. At night, when you set the alarm, it goes into flight mode. When the alarm kicks off in the morning, it takes itself off flight mode.
