    On my other devices (Android and Apple) the WiFi stays connected to receive incoming WiFi calls, texts, emails, etc. (even while the screen is black/off)

    When I unlock the Le Pan TC970, the WiFi symbol isn't there and then it returns.

    Under "settings" the WiFi says "obtaining address" and then connects." I don't see a setting to keep it active so it doesn't sleep.

    Am I missing something or is this the way the device is?

    I can get a "keep alive wifi" app to fix this.

    In a related question, is there no "airplane mode" setting anywhere?

    I have no airplane setting either. As far as the Wi-Fi goes...I believe that is how the tablet is designed and you have to get an app to keep it on. I use Wi-Fi Lock.
