Thanks for hitting the "thanks" button.

One "catch" I should note that you may not be aware of when shutting off the 3G. You will not be able to download or send a SMS Text message with a picture attachment. The text will go thru, but not the picture. It will also not send/receive thru WiFi - it must use 3G. So it you get a text message with a picture attachment, before you click the "download" button attached to the text, go turn the 3G on first, then come back and hit "download" and you'll get the picture.
