    hi heading to Dominican Republic soon

    would like to be able to use wifi
    not interested in making phone calls

    can this be done?
    will there be added charges?
    what do I need to know?

    I went to Dr in 2003. I made the mistake of not notifying verizon before. Wifi wasn't free then and internet is really expensive. Was something like a dollar a minute. Call verizon before you leave the country. I wasn't able to use the wifi for free when I went. Not sure if 3g works or not.

    - Verizon can not and will not charge you for using someone else's WiFi.

    - To be sure you are not using or roaming onto a Mobile data network, turn off Mobile network when you are there.

    Settings -> Wireless controls -> Mobile network (off)
    Settings -> Wireless controls -> Mobile network settings -> Data roaming (off)
    Settings -> Wireless controls -> Mobile network settings -> Enable always-on mobile (off)
    Settings -> WiFi (on)

    - A hotel or other establishment in DR certainly can charge you to use their WiFi if they desire (similar to what hotels in the US used to do 10 years ago); I don't know if that is typical there. I imagine that if and when they charge it is a flat rate access - so many dollars per day or per hour.

    Many Thanks for taking the time to give me such precise directions!!!

    I wasn't clear in my initial post about added charges
    I should have said added charges from Verizon

    My hotel has wifi for a fee so I'm all set
    I'm happy just to have internet access

    again thanks for sharing
