    Well I have Sprint 700p but I suppose this applies to Verizon, too.

    You can turn off the phone (radio signal) by holding the power key and continue to use 700p as a regular PDA. So you can play games and work on your word documents while you are on the plane.

    No offense, but reading the manual for super basic question like this is always a good thing. I completely support the right for people - especially new users - to post all sorts of questions, but this is like a page 2 of the manual type of thing...

    on at all times not the phone I know how to turn the phone off.When taking off and landing all electronic devises are supposed to be turned off.According to Verizon customer service there is no way to turn the 700p broadband connection off not the phone but the broadband connection its always on.Is this correct??If it is correct you cant have the device connected to its battery when taking off or landing.

    From Page 38 of the Treo 700p Users Manual (Verizon):

    Turning your phone on and off

    When your phone is on, it is connected to the Verizon Wireless network
    (provided you are in a coverage area) so that you can make and receive
    phone calls and use wireless services, such as email, messaging, and
    the web browser. During initial setup, your phone is on by default, so
    you can use wireless services right away.

    If you turn off your phone, you can still use the organizer features such
    as Contacts and Calendar, as well as the media features, such as the
    pTunes music application and Pics&Videos. This is sometimes referred
    to as flight mode and is ideal for airplane flights and maximizing battery
    life.

    Simply put, because another lame, uneducated, lazy CSR told him that.

    But, by all means, let's blame him and call him stupid...
    Out...

    endlessquestion,

    To put it plainly, the "broadband connection" is made through the phone's modem. When you turn the phone off, the modem is powered off also. Yeah, VZW reps get it wrong about 50% of the time. Might as well toss a coin!

    I still dont get what he is trying to do, if your going to be on a flight then you need the radio off period, why would you just want to turn off the internet connection to do that just go to pref-->network--->disconnect ..but your radio will still be on. i dont get what the purpose of you doing this is.

    I think he just didn't realize that the phone = the radio = the broadband connection. The "always on" language confused him.

    ok, how about turning the entire unit OFF, phone, organizer, etc....the whole enchilada
    is it possible without taking the battery out? and than can it be turned back on without turning the phone ON?

    See post #7. Just turn off the phone radio and you can use the device as a normal pda, without signal.

    No, you can't turn off the PDA portion w/o taking out the battery.
