    So somehow I got small cracks on my screen which has disabled the touchscreen completly. I went to the sprint store and they were very helpful and I am getting a new phone for no charge (I have Insurance), but due to the fact it is the weekend the phone will not get to the store until Monday.

    Anyways, I am stuck with my phone through the weekend after the tech showed me how to use most things using the keyboard. However my phone somehow got stuck on airplane mode and i can not find how to turn it off. I can't click on the top right or on the dialog when I try to call someone. I have also tried resetting the phone with no success.

    Does anyone know how to turn off the airplane mode without touching the screen?

    No!! With no touchscreen, you won't be able to log back in to your profile!

    Damn! You're right. I forget all about the part where you have to choose your preferred language.

    I guess not. In order to turn off airplane mode requires the drop down menu. Maybe someone else have another way of making this possible.

    My son had the same thing just happen to his, only they are charging the $100 for replacement (even with insurance).

    Yeah that what I was worried about was paying the $100 but apparently according to the sprint store Sprint has redone their insurance policies and now you only have to pay the $100 for water damage or if the phone is smashed. I have noticed Sprint has slowing been improving there customer service skills.

    I tried making an app that would turn off Airplane Mode, but I couldn't get it to work...

    Problem Solved!!!

    Here is how you solve it for any people that have the problem in the future:

    Open up your phone application and then remove the back cover of your phone so that you have easy access to quickly remove the battery as you will need to do that. Second, once you have the phone app open use your keyboard to enter "911" and then click enter to call. This will disable the airplane mode, once the phone goes into the calling mode pull out your battery to disconnect the call before the phone connects (or you can explain to the operator why you had to call 911 your choice) but i found i was able to pull the battery before the phone dialed or got through "connecting".
