How can I turn off the cellular connection (-no phone calls) without tapping airplane mode?

I know how to turn off wi-fi without airplane mode, but I can't seem to find the same thing for the general cellular connection (including talk), only for cellular data.

  • Specify your version of Windows Mobile so someone may help you. – mms911 Jun 28 '16 at 3:01
  • @mms911 His has tagged his question with windows-10-mobile. And this settings have remained the same in all versions of Widows 10, if that's what you are asking. Please read the question carefully. – Kolappan N Jun 28 '16 at 4:02
  • @KolappanNathan Sorry I haven't noticed these tags. – mms911 Jun 28 '16 at 4:31
  • @mms911 It's okay. – Kolappan N Jun 28 '16 at 4:33

You can turn of Cellular connection by doing the following steps:

  1. Go to Settings->Network & Wireless-> Mobile & Sim. Note - It will be Cellular & Sim for English US.
  2. Near Sim 1 and Sim 2, you will find toggles to turn those SIM on and off.

As you asked this will turn of the entire cellular connection including talk, sms and mobile data.

  • I see Cellular & SIM not Mobile & SIM, and the only toggle button there is for Data connection under Cellular data. – ispiro Jun 28 '16 at 11:03
  • @ispiro Cellular & SIM will be the name if you use English(US) or similar language as display language. I use English(India) hence it is Mobile & SIM for me. And regarding the toggle button it is present there. I have added a screnshot to make things clear. Just take a look at my updated answer. Thank you. – Kolappan N Jun 28 '16 at 11:46
  • Thanks. This is very strange. I don't have that on my phone. Perhaps it's only available on dual-sim phones (as yours obviously is)? – ispiro Jun 28 '16 at 12:35
  • @ispiro Perhaps. Yes, My phone is a dual sim phone.If that is the case I suggest you give a suggestion in Windows Feedback. – Kolappan N Jun 28 '16 at 13:46
