This is true for OS 2007, and OS 2008. Offline mode is the second selection on 
the menu. BTW Offline mode is great for other places where radio silence is 
not an issue. It saves a good bit of power. Especially in places where you 
are on fringes of wifi were you can get and lose connectivity often. I have 
places in  my office like that is I can sometimes kill a battery change 
quickly just carrying it around. This has much improved in OS 2008 BTW.
