    That's an interesting question. What if you're out in the back of beyond and there's no signal. Hadn't thought of that.

    That is an interesting question. I'm guessing yes as long as the merchant themselves has connectivity. ApplePay should communication with he POS terminal via NFC which doesn't require wifi or cell signal. So as long as the POS terminal has a connection, it should still work.

    Or would airplane mode cut off the nfc antenna? Turn off data then.

    It should totally work offline. It should be much like how our Canadian Visa cards work with the touch and pay systems here. The NFC chip communicates with the retailor's VISA machine and sends the info to the VISA machine which is online. The VISA card with NFC is never actually online and connected to the internet.

    It most likely does. All that is being transferred to the machine is the secret code, or so I assume. Nothing is stored in your phone and therefore nothing is being sent via that phone. The amount is being sent by the place in which you purchased the item. That is how it is done here anyway.

    I used it in a low signal area where I was on 2g and it worked fast as I could put my finger on touch id.
