Airplane Mode does not disable BT
Airplane mode on my phone does NOT disable BlueTooth.
Maybe you need to get a new phone?

Hopefully, now that the patent that caused Lexra so much trouble (in which processor instructions dealing with misaligned memory) is resolved, MIPS64 can really take on real life.
The Chinese Loongson (Godson) processors have been used in their supercomputers for several years. MIPS is not a dead technology by anyone's opinion. A simple RISC core even more easy to scale and license than SPARC is exactly what the world needs, and China knows it. Now the rest of the world can revive this somewhat forgotten alternative to the hundreds of hyped 32-bit ARM-based derivatives flooding the market. MIPS is has been 64-bit for over a decade.
CompuServe kept their 36-bit PDP-10 computers in production late into the 2000s. By then most of them were clones that were produced for CompuServe's specifications decades after Digital Equipment Corporation stopped making the machines.
They were finally turned off and disposed of in 2009, far outliving most of the line's VAX successors.
I'm not even from the U.K. and only visit from time to time, and even I know that most stations are already on DAB+ or are in the process of converting to it. All current radios support both. The DAB+ format uses HE-AAC v2 and sounds wonderful compared to the old DAB format's MPEG Layer 2 codec. The HE-AAC v2 codec is the same audio codec that replaced the iBiquity IBOC system's original codec here in the United States, and is very similar to the codec that is used by the XM Satellite Radio system. Furthermore, DAB+ has better coverage due to advanced forward-error correction.
Digital radio in the UK is in a good situation, I think.
