I want to turn off everything except GPS

I was out in a remote area yesterday with no cell reception.  I was using a GPS app on my phone to record the route that I explored.  About half way through the day the phone ran out of battery and died.  I had blue-tooth and cellular data turned off but I saw that the phone still said "searching" in the top left.  If I put the phone into airplane mode the searching message would go away but surprisingly, the GPS did too.  
I want to stop the phone hunting for a cellular signal - I'm in the middle of no where and I know that it will never find one - so that it can save it's battery for a job that is more important.  Any ideas?
Sean

All radios are turned off with Airplane Mode.  Only wifi and BT can be turned back on.
Try popping out your SIM card.

  • Turn off everything but gps?

    How can I turn off/block all cell/sms/wifi while keeping gps active?

    Page 99 of the manual "Airplane mode":
    " No phone, radio, Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth signals are emitted from iPhone and GPS reception is
    turned off, disabling many of iPhone’s features. "

  • How do I get to the startup menu. I have 6 apps start when I power on that I want to turn off.

    I want to turn off some of the apps when my system starts up. There are about 6 apps, programs, that start and it takes too long for the mac to get going.

    Two possibilities: Open System Preferences, select Users & Groups, and right above your user picture you'll see buttons for Password and Login Items. Select Login Items. In the window pane you'll see a list of items that are selected for startup at login. Select an item you don't want and click on the minus button at the bottom of the pane.
    If any (or all) of the programs that are starting up don't appear in this list it means that these programs were running when you shut the computer down. In Lion, by defaul, any program running when the computer is shut down will automatically restart. There's a dialog box that appears when you select logout or restart which allows you to cancel this for that logout only. In other words, you much click the checkmark each time you logout/quit. I don't shutdown often and have an SSD so this behavior doesn't annoy me much, except at work where i don't have an SSD and I do shut down more often.

    I want to turn off the autoplay feature in iTunes.  I'd like iTunes to stop after one podcast.  The latest version has changed the default for playback.

    Make sure that the system time and date on your computer are set correctly.
    If "I Understand the Risks" is missing then this page may be opened in an (i)frame and in that case try the right-click context menu and use "This Frame: Open Frame in New Tab".
    You can retrieve the certificate and check details like who issued certificates and expiration dates of certificates.
    *Click the link at the bottom of the error page: "I Understand the Risks"
    Let Firefox retrieve the certificate: "Add Exception" -> "Get Certificate".
    *Click the "View..." button and inspect the certificate and check who is the issuer of the certificate.
    You can see more Details like intermediate certificates that are used in the Details pane.
    Note that some firewalls monitor secure (https) connections and send their own certificate instead of the website's certificate.

  • I want to turn off auto updating on my Mac 10.4.11 How do I do this?

    # Question
    I want to turn off auto updating on my Mac 10.4.11 How do I do this?
    When firefox tries to upgrade (without asking) it tends to upset my Mac's usual functioning.

    You can go into Edit, then Preferences, then Advanced, then update, and set your update settings there.

  • When  I try to add songs, iTunes wants to take off everything that is already there and will only add what I've added from my computer

    An iPhone can only sync with one computer at a time. All of the music you want on your phone must be on the same computer.

  • How do I turn off the automatic check for update on opening Firefox? I want to turn off that "what's new" page.

    How do I turn off that automatic update that always brings me to the "what's new" web page? It was interesting the first time, but now it is just an irritation. I can check for updates on my own, so I want to turn off this feature. It just started up when I upgraded to Firefox 5. I can't find a place to stop it from checking and bringing me to that web page. Also, I can't stop it from checking add-ons every single time I open the browser.

    did you check the suggestions mentioned in the article i posted in my previous post ??

    Mobile stolen and I want to turn off the device and locate it  

    If you set up the Find My iPhone service prior to your iPhone going missing, then there is a chance that can be tracked, though it depends on a number of factors: the iPhone is turned on, connected to either the 3G or a WiFi network, or has not had the Find My iPhone service disabled or the iPhone been completely restored. Log into icloud.com and go to the Find My iPhone section. If you did not set up Find My iPhone, check with your cell carrier. Some carriers offer their own tracking service, though you usually have to sign up when you still have the phone and have to pay for the service. 
    If your carrier does not offer such a service and you did not set up Find My iPhone, then there is no way to track the unit. Notify the police and your cell carrier, and change any passwords for any online accounts you may have used from your iPhone (the iTunes Store, for instance). 
    Regards.

  • I have had trim enabled but it seems for better security Apple want it turned off in Yosemite

    Hi I have a Macbook pro Early 2011 with 8gb of ram and a 126gb ssd and I have just upgraded to Yosemite. The first login to Yosemite I got a message saying Tim enabler was not active & then I realised that my version did not run on the latest version of OSX. A quick Google search I came across this article http://www.cindori.org/status-of-trim-enabler-in-yosemite/ could anyone give any advice on weather my sandisk SSD (ww.amazon.co.uk/SanDisk-128-Inch-Internal-SDSSDP-128G-G25/dp/B007ZW2LY4/ref=sr _1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1413742364&sr=8-5&keywords=sandisk+ssd) will run ok without trim since I installed it, I have had trim enabled and it has been fine but it seems for better security apple want it turned off in Yosemite and I don't what the best thing to do is.
    Thanks

    Take your iPhone to an Apple Store or authorized service center in the country where you purchased the iPhone and they will look at it and replace it under warranty if applicable.
    If you cannot take it person contact them to determine how to send them your phone.
    You can't expect them to replace your iPhone without first examining it.

  • My elderly mother hss EXTREMELY limited vision and is a technophobe. I am considering an iPhone with Siri.  Can I turn off everything else so she can use only the phone app and voice dialing and not accidentally open any other app and screw something

    My elderly mother has EXTREMELY limited vision and is a technophobe. I am considering an iPhone with Siri.  Can I turn off everything else so she can use only the phone app and voice dialing or Siri and not accidentally open any other app and screw something up.

    I'm asking, in all seriousness, why do you think your mother needs an iPhone? Honestly, if your mother is, as you described her, a technophobe, I would recommend against getting an iPhone or any other smartphone. I've spent a fair bit of time teaching older folks to use smartphones. If they are interested in learning, it's fine. If they have the phone because their kids or grandkids thought it was a good idea but they are afraid of the phone or not interested in its features, it doesn't go well at all.
    Many basic phones have voice dialing. Obviously, it doesn't do all the things Siri does but it may be much less intimidating for your mom. Also, basic phones have hardware keys. Even someone with limited vision can learn the keyboard on such a phone. From the sound of your first post, all she will be doing is making phone calls.
    Best of luck.
