    Does anyone know, is there a way to turn off calls (so the phone doesn't make or receive calls, they just go straight to voice mail, as if the phone was turned off) but still have 3g internet turned on?

    There are some days where I don't want any calls, and would just like to browse the internet on my phone uninterrupted.

    airplane mode and wifi would be one possibility.

    This is your only option I think. As far as I know, the ONLY way to disable calling is to turn on airplane mode. And you cannot turn 3g on after you've enabled airplane mode. However, you can turn wifi back on and stay in airplane mode.

    Install the senseui Rom... When it has Data on, the phone doesn't work...

    You could get a google voice #, then use *72+the google voice# and it will forward directly to your google voice #. Make sure you set up your google voice so that it does not ring to your cell phone. Then you can install the google voice app and see the voicemails. Let me know how this works.

    It worked for me. Did you remember to use two pound keys (##) and not just one?

    Also, doing this won't give me any trouble with turning it back on, do you know? I realize it's not making an actual call to go into that menu, so I wouldn't need to make a call to turn it on.... but I'd hate to do that and suddenly be stuck

    Turning it back on shouldn't be a problem. You don't need to make a call to get into that menu. If the phone has a problem reregistering on the network after turning CDMA+EVDO back on, you may need to pull the battery out and turn it back on.

    It might be a good idea to turn Airplane mode on, then turn it to EVDO only, then turn Airplane mode off so the network knows you've logged off.
