[Bug 1488170] Re: Bluetooth initiated after quitting airplane mode


I experience this under Ubuntu 10.1 also.


- Ensure that bluetooth is DISABLED.
- Enable "flight" mode (so that all wireless communications are switched-off).
- Wait a few seconds after all wireless communications has been switched-off, then disable "flight" mode.

- Wireless connectivity (in my case, connection to a cellular telecommunications network) is restored, but with bluetooth ENABLED.

- Wireless connectivity is restored to the same state it was in when "flight" mode was enabled (i.e. the mobile device remembers the state of wireless networking/Wi-Fi, bluetooth and cellular).
