Does anyone know if it's possible to turn off data when roaming internationally, but still be able to use text. A lot of posts have said to use airplane mode but that won't allow me to text. I'm going on a cruise and won't be using the phone much (certainly don't need apps etc) but I'd like to check back in at home via text (which isn't outrageously expensive) and I don't want to get killed in data usage by having the phone on.
I've never travelled with my Droid so I don't know what to do. In the past, I just used my old phone as normal, and avoided going on the internet, but the phone still worked. Any advice would be extremely helpful.
