Airplane mode

You can put it on airplane mode, it's called that for a reason

Turn on the airplane mode and you'll be fine. All the data and wifi connections will be shut down but you'll be able to play games and apps with no problem.

All electronics are supposed to be turned completely off during take-offs and landings, the cabin crew will usually announce when you can turn the phone on, you can then turn your phone on in airlplane mode. One exception is when wifi is available on flights.

You can use any electronic device except for a phone but I do know that if you have an iPhone you can turn it to airplane mode but you cannot use it as a phone such as texting or calling but you will be able to play games or listen to music etc. Some other phones may also have this setting but as far as I know they don't.

The airlines will talk about that before you take off because every airline is diffrent
