    turn off just data

    Is there a way to just turn off data on the droid but still make and receive calls as well as still get text messages? I travel on cruises and don't want to pay roaming charges for the data, but still want to be able to make and receive calls and text messages.

    Well that would suck if it did. I have never had a smart phone like that before. I have been able to do it before w/ all my other phones that I have had in the past, such as BB, windows mobile. So I hope that either there is an app, or some setting that is out there.

    Do they have wifi on board? might be cheaper to turn on wifi since it kills the data connect over cellular...

    lol..Never thought of that. That will keep it from roaming.
    But that would kill both Data and Cellular from roaming....Right?

    No, Not at the moment. lol.

    If he goes out of the roaming area that Verizon has available he will not be able to use his phone anyway. It's not a world wide phone like the Storm. It will prevent him from using data. If he goes out of the area he would have to use WiFi for messaging.
