Here is the command line flight mode on/off/toggle utility.

Command lines to switch on and off
Code:
\Program Files\rk-FltMode\rk-FltMode.exe on
\Program Files\rk-FltMode\rk-FltMode.exe off
\Program Files\rk-FltMode\rk-FltMode.exe toggle

Developed to support rk-Sleep/rk-Location switch applications but could be used anywhere!

Note: This application requires Compact Framework 2.0
You need compact framework 2.0 installed inorder to run this application. The compact framework is already part of WM6, so if your device is WM6 skip this step. But most of the WM5 devices do not have this update. So you must download here and run the installation on your desktop (then active sync to update your device). Only after completing this step install the application.

Rajesh,
Thanks for adding the toggle funtion. Is there a way to assign either a soft or hardware button to the toggle funtion. Thank you for the help, I am not that familiar with command line stuff. Any help would be appreciated.

Yes christopher, You need to create a shortcut to 'rk-FltMode.exe' with the command line as specified in the first post
e.g
Code:
\Program Files\rk-FltMode\rk-FltMode.exe toggle

You can use resco explorer or any freeware application available to create the shortcut.

I am not getting something. I went to /program files/rk-fltmode and in that file there is an exe that goes to your program. I made a shortcut and named it" rk-fltmode.exe TOGGLE". WHen I click on it it takes me to your program but that is it. Could you please give me a step by step instructions please.

I have the at&t tilt if that helps. Thanks in advance.

The shortcut name can be anything...
You need to right click on the shortcut you created.. and choose properties from the context menu
From the window displayed choose the tab 'Shortcut'
now edit the Target as follows
\Program Files\rk-FltMode\rk-FltMode.exe toggle
Click Ok on the top
Now tap on the shortcut you created it should toggle the flighmode for you...
If not let me know i will send you the shortcut

Thank You, I finally was able to make it work. On the Tilt though it only turns off the Cell radio, it doesn't accually put it in flight mode. but it works for my purpose. Again thank you for al the hard work.

Nice work.

:D

Only one question: Is it possible to enter the security pin automatically?

Yes it's the sim lock.

In wm6, you can find it at Start -> Settings -> Phone (requiere PIN when phone is used)

There is an VERY old app by HTC that also switches on/off the GSM Radio (ie NO real flight mode) I am using it for years now. Packaged it into my own cab.
It has a very small memory footprint (5.5Kb, no frameworks needed!) and usage is easy: Star the program (the cab puts a link in Startmenu/programs) to togle the radio status.

Security PIN is NOT the same as SIM Lock.
The security PIN is the code you have to supply when you want to use your SIM (ie when the GSM radio is switched on).
You can disable the security PIN like mentioned above.

SIM ock is something else: It prevents you to use SIM's from other networks than the device is locked to. You need an unlock code from your network operator or from www.imei-check.co.uk (you might have to pay for that) OR use some specific software to get rid of the SIM lock (search the forum if there is such software available for your device).

I can't disable. I have a dual SIM. One pin is for personal use and the other one for business...

Of course you can disable the ecurity PIN, but maybe you don't want to...
BTW: For some dual SIM adaptors (like my 15th gen) you have to disable PIN security!
