Why is Airplane Mode Recommended for International Travel?

Environment

Answer

Airplane mode is recommended for international travel because it disables the WiFi, Bluetooth, and cellular antennas in the phone. Enabling Airplane mode then re-enabling WiFi will prevent the phone from trying to activate on a cellular network, while allowing the phone to make calls and send texts to the US and Canada over WiFi.
