Default stuck in airplane mode

My streak is stuck in airplane mode and need help. The only thing I've tried so far is removing the battery, but no luck there. I have searched for fixes but haven't come across anything yet. I've been using Dell's 2.2 for a few days without any problems til today. Does anyone have any ideas on how to get my phone working again?

It's probably stupid to ask, but...did you go to settings>wireless & networks and try toggling the airplane mode on/off?

Also, do you by chance have an app like nobars installed? This will put the phone into airplane mode when there's no signal (reducing battery drain).

do this:
flash 1.5.1 and let it boot
turn off and then hold both volume buttons while powering back up
select option 1 factory reset
then select update software from zip and flash whatevrr version u want on there.

The reason why youre going back down to 1.5.1 is bc later versions doesnt support factory reset.

Edit: sorry I thought you had upgraded to 1.6.1

Doing the factory reset worked, thanks for the suggestion.

I'm on stock Dell build, I'm not savvy enough to figure out how to flash any of Steve's builds on yet. It took a long time just to get to where I am now.

It kind of freaked me out when it became stuck in airplane mode. I had just turned on thethering, then noticed I lost my data signal and lost all phone bars. I was thinking AT&T busted me for thethering or something, haha it was a bad few minutes. I noticed the phone was in airplane mode, I tried unchecking it and it would just say something like acquiring signal, but airplane mode wouldn't shut down.

Anyways, factory reset did the trick. Thanks everyone for giving suggestions.
