Last time I plugged in an I-Phone into the PA, it rang (thru the PA of course) 
The guitar player came over to the board and instead of silencing it, he answered the call!

When he hung up, there were a LOT of people staring at him.
(no one on the dance floor was staring though.... because there was no one left on the dance floor!  What a wanker! )

Hence the airplane mode, which turns your iphone into a video iPod without the annoying ringing in the middle of a show.

Not sure on the iPhone but on my Android I just disable 1x and i keep my EVDO/3G data so I can still run slacker/pandora for breaks without having to worry about voice.

At least with the 3G, a TRS out cable works fine.  I believe that the second ring is a mic input, as the only thing I've seen with a TRRS plug is the Apple earbud+mic gadget.

As long as you can get a wi-fi signal you can turn on airplane mode which will turn off the phone and then go in and turn on the wi-fi which will get you the internet.

 I have a Plam Pre and the silent switch will silence the ringer in the headphone jack but not silence pandora or other media audio output.  There might be a way to do this with the iphone.  The issue I have though is that Verizon is my carrier and their network does not support phone calls and internet at the same time.  When I get a call I don't hear the ring through the PA but internet streaming will stop.  This will happen with the iphone if you get one from Verizon. 
  I don't often use my phone for music playback through the PA but it does come in handy in a pinch.  One trick I have found is that if your phone is connected to the console you can always PFL that channel and be able to hear a call through the cans during a loud set.

Putting the phone on silent (vibration only mode) doesn't fix the ringing through the PA along with keeping the 3G connection?

I even have some that are Trs 1/8 to Xlr that work well I keep them in the doghouse of consoles that don't have any 1/4" inputs.
Just be careful about phantom power...your phone could have a bad day.

Somewhat related...

I had an interesting thing happen the other day. During a festival, had a group show up to do a dance and their only playback format was an iphone. Thought sweet, popped it on aeroplane mode and thought nothing of it...

Halfway through their track the iphone skips to the next track... Apparently there is quite a volume different from Miles Davis to Metillica... Gave me a hell of a fright.

On further investigation, iphones will play back as much of a corrupt wav file as they can, and when they can no longer, they skip to the next track!!

You learn something new each day...!
