    Default Airplane mode + Bluetooth

    Is there anyway to put on airplane mode but keep bluetooth on? There are times when I don't want to be disturbed (no texts, no calls, emails, or notifications from any app) but want to use my bluetooth headphones. I have SBSettings toggles that turn off data (prevents emails and app notifications), but nothing that turns off cell service (which would prevent texts).

    Anyone have any solutions?

    Enable airplane mode, then turn bluetooth on manually. Same works for wifi.

    My iPhone is not jailbroken, however, I was able to simply turn on Airplane mode and then turn on Bluetooth even though it was initially disabled after enabling Airplane mode.
