    Greetings

    I'm going to Europe in May for business and afterwards, doing some touring. After business completed, I want to send my luggage and laptop back to the states and only keep my Motorola A855 as my link to home. Moving far, fast and light.

    I know I cannot use the cell service.... but my questions are:

    Can I use the GPS features without cell tower connection?
    Can I use the WiFi only in hotspots without cell tower connection?

    If the answers are yes to my previous two... how should I configure phone to NOT scan for cell service and wear out battery?

    Thanks in advance for any info

    Cheers

    Chewie

    The GPS receiver doesn't need the network. However, your GPS app may require data.

    Yes.
