    I'll be traveling to Australia and while I do not want to use my Verizon Droid Razr Maxx to make calls or access data, I would like to use the non-data functions of the phone, calculator, camera, etc. How do I prevent the phone from trying to access and acquire a signal? When I have a Wi-Fi connection, is there anything different about using it in Australia?

    Thanks in advance for any and all advice.

    Assuming you are using Ice Cream Sandwich: Go to Settings by clicking lower left button on phone and choosing System Settings. Under Wireless & Networks, choose, More ... Select Mobile Networks. Make sure the Global Data Roaming Acces is not checked. This will make sure that while you are roaming you don't use data. There is no strong reason not to allow roaming with respect to calls. If someone calls you and you don't answer, you are not charged anyway. Same if you don't make any calls. The only charge you would not be able to control in this case would be incoming text messages, if someone sends you a text.
