I simply thought this would be a no brainer on a cell phone. I dont put open air microwaves running in my pocket .
And someone said the L5 might not be able to sustain frequent actuation of the hardware switches.
This might be a deal breaker for me . Airplane mode or some variant thereof is a necessity for me .
I know it might not seem like a big deal to many but I just cant do it . Hopefully someone thought of this. Otherwise I may need to request a refund Which I dont want at all . Ill be extremely sad if there is no airplane toggle.
If I have tumors in me from cell radiation if the hardware switches arent rated for frequent use my privacy wont matter much
Oh, Is that so? Source? I mean real source not speculation.
Corrected with IF not rated for frequent use . But I cant imagine they are meant to be actuated 30 times a day .
My phone is literally on airplane mode unless im using it when not at home . I assumed there would be an airplane mode like in every other phone built in to subsidize the hardware switches.
Speaking of tumors
I hope you are taking care of wifi routers at home proper - keeping the safe distance or turning them off. Same goes with any wifi devices in use - far from the body
I have no clue why every time I reply it doesn’t reply directly to the person, so gotta delete and click again
Yea im on the very edge of the wifi signal and never go in the room the router is located.
You can also make a faraday cage around your bed. I saw some people doing it and it seems cool, I might do it sometime.
If you buy 2 L5s and keep them synchronised and always keep one in the cage then your data stays safe and you will have access to a working L5 in the case of an EMP attack. Maybe you should get 3 L5s just for the case that a second EMP attack comes before you have had time to buy another L5 after the first EMP attack.
OK that was kidding but seriously I think a faraday cage bed would be great to have.
Purism is working on a soft toggle for airplane mode:
it was a pure ASSUMPTION mind you - just food for thought not to be taken as proof or real source. i usually give links when i want to make a proper statement.
YESSSSSS , PURISM IS THE WAY THE LIGHT AND THE FUTURE !!!
Man I got nervous .
I really use it as a mobile voice mail / text machine with the ability to call out . unless im hanging out somewhere then I leave it on but not close to me but I never keep it in my pocket not on airplane mode.
And when I do make a call its on speakerphone. I never put this these little microwaves up to my head .
wouldn’t a pair of mic-iems make for a better call experience ? speakerphone is ok if you are alone at home but in public not so much. unless you want to troll everyone
and obvious potential privacy issues.
However, I didn’t see anything about it in the phosh mockup.
I don’t know where it’ll be on the menus.
I usually have on ear headphones with me when im out to use and then just use the phone for a mic . unless im at work . Then I dont use the phone at all .
And if I dont have headphones i just turn the volume all the way down so only I can hear it on speaker.
Don’t forget to ground it.
A Faraday cage over my bed hahaha That would be awesome .
Not an answer, but you can do it manually now with AT commands, i wonder what the benefit would be compared to just toggling it off?:
How to set airplane mode
A. Type ATCommad“AT+CFUN=4”, enter intoairpalne mode.
（at+cfun=1 is normal mode；at+cfun=0 turn off RF, SIM 卡
cannot register ；default is equal 1；at+cfun？shows
It seems Gnome settings would have to be updated to include a lot more modem related settings:
