    I have an S3 on the Verizon network. I'm traveling to Canada next week and to avoid absurd roaming charges, I'm hoping I can make my calls home (to the US)over Skype using free wireless connections in the hotel, McDonalds, etc.
    I can't seem to figure out how to turn data VIA cell service off and leave data VIA a wireless internet connection on.

    Thanks much for your help.

    Airplane mode is sufficient. But I am paranoid when I am out of the country. I use airplane mode and turn off data roaming in settings.
