    You definitely can turn off Data roaming - Menu/Settings/Wireless & Networks/Mobile Networks, Uncheck Data Roaming. It stopped mine from getting a data connection at home, where I am in US Cellular 1x territory. If I travel a little ways down the road until the Verizon signal picks up a little it will link up to 3G. Since domestic data roaming is included in our Nationwide plan, I keep the Roaming box checked.

    My recommendation is if you're on a cruise....FORGET THE PHONE!

    Considering VZW's "Cruise Ship Service Rate" is $2.49/min, I must say, unless it is a dire emergency, I would agree with Vulcan1600Rider

    I have heard horror stories involving huge charges incurred just by turning on mobile phones while traveling. Voice mail charges in particular. Can you do the opposite of what the OP asks and turn off the phone and just use it for wifi? What would the settings be for that?

    On the same note, I will be on a cruise next week. Was wondering I can turn off Data , Text and voice but Keep the GPS on just for kicks to see where I am on the maps ? Of using Maps need data ? also, One other noob question. If I connect to a wifi, Will data automatically goes thru wifi and not wireless network ?
