    Hi, I was wondering what happens when you have your iphone or android in use on a flight on the vision and some calls the phone , this may be a dim question?
    Obviously your phone is not in flight mode as it's wifi is being used ? :?:

    I don't know the answer to that, but on the iphone you can enable flight mode then switch wifi back on manually. So you can enable flight mode to prevent unwanted calls, but you can still use wifi. Don't know if android devices can do the same.

    I put my Android phone in airplane mode and turn wifi back on.

    Happens to me all the time (it's like they know I'm flying). No worries, either take the call (speakerphone or earpiece) or send it to voice mail. At least for me (Galaxy Note 3), other than the brief interruption in FPV (as the caller screen is displayed) and the fact that I need to use a hand to interface with the phone, it has no side effects.

    Cheers

    If it's an iPhone, you can turn on Do Not Disturb mode before flying.
