    Traveling to Chile

    Hello, I have a droid running bb .05 and I am traveling I was wondering if there was a way to shut off 3g, edge, phone service... and just use the phone over wifi so I dont get any charges, basically turn it into an android wifi tablet/mp3 player but still be able to use skype over wifi and surf the web...

    Hey man , now im not to sure but i would like to try and help you ..

    I know you can turn off the cell radio in settings so that the only data you get has to be over wifi..
    now for the phone part you could maybe remove the phone.apk? and then put it back when you get home?

    yes you can all you have to do is leave the phone on airplane mode, and turn on your wifi the only draw back is that you can't use your bluetooth if your are taking one.

    hope this helps.

    If you install another rom like UD or LFY you have more options in the power widget. One is to disable 2g and or 3g. Turn off everything but wifi and it should work.

    you could install switchpro widget...its on the market....I moved mine to system just cuz.... but it has a toggle for data. It alsob has a toggle for 3g/2g but I can't get it to work....but the data works just fine...I can still make and receive texts but no data....saves my battery too.
