    Yurp. Just download the Quick Settings app, open it, and turn off 3G data. Turn it back on when you're ready to do so.

    I downloaded the app but I don't see anywhere to turn the phone part off to not acceptance incoming calls.

    I am not familiar with a way to turn off the phone feature on Android as you can do wtih BB. The closest you can get to that is switching to Airplane mode and using wifi.

    Turn on airplane mode, then toggle wifi back on. Wifi will work, incoming calls will not
    Deep Thought #1
    How does Verizon sell phones at their own stores? Any phone they sell, can be found for 50% to 75% less on Amazon, or at Best Buy. Does Verizon operate their stores on a "there is a sucker born every minute" business model?
    Deep Thought #2
    Is Verizon's customer service philosophy: frustrate, aggravate, and exasperate, these annoying interruptions to our day, will eventually go away?

    Yes you would be able to switch wifi back on using a power widget or through settings.

    If you toggle off 3G in Quick Settings you should no longer be able to send or receive calls. The only way I know that you would get calls over wifi is if you are using skype or what-not.

    3G is just the data connection. when its off you can still make and receive calls.
