In preparation for a cross-country airplane ride, I loaded up spotify on my ipod touch with music from my library and put together a bunch of offline playlists. "This is going to be a GREAT 6-hour flight," I thought.
Then I turned off my ipod when they said "all electronic devices must be turned off".
Then when we were in the air, I turned it back on and set it to airplane mode.
When I opened spotify, it asked me to log in. Then it said "Turn Off Airplane Mode or Use Wi-Fi to Access Data".
Then when I did that, it said something about no DNS server available.
Then, 6 hours of fidgety boredom in silence.
If I want to listen to spotify on a plane, does it mean that I can't shut down the ipod when they tell us to shut off our electronic devices? How am I supposed to listen to my offline music when I'm -- wait for it -- OFFLINE??

I am having the same issue constantly on my iPhone 5. It's a 64GB so there is plenty of room free but each time I fly, I switch the phone to flight mode, turn it off etc. And upon opening the spotify app mid-flight it asks me to login via FaceBook. I have a premium account and live in Australia. Please help as I am flying overseas in two days and would love to have this fixed by then.
