I recently switched phones but am keeping my old phone for use on WiFi. I have put the phone in airplane mode to improve battery life and keep it from looking for the cell network (as this is futile, it is no longer activated).
However, now every morning I am getting an error telling me that Backup Assistant was unable to sync. At first I thought this was very strange as I have a WiFi and Internet connection. However when I finally went into the app to see what was going on it told me I was in airplane mode and asked did I want to exit airplane mode or cancel. Obviously I don't want to exit airplane mode so as to save battery life, nor do I want to have to manually sync as that defeats the whole purpose of automatic backup.
How can I get Backup Assistant to work without leaving airplane mode?
