    I'm heading up to Vancouver, Canada for the Olympics and I was wondering how I could change the setting on my phone so that it doesn't keep downloading/uploading data when I am up there. I just want it to keep the phone on just for emergency calls/text. Is there a way to completely shut off the data for the phone? ALso, does the GPS work without the data coverage?

    The safest way is to use an APN toggler. Search the market. This will turn off data totally, and you can turn it back on with one click if you want.

    Its also a great battery saver when you're down to you're last 20% or so.

    The other way is to make sure under setings -> wireless -> mobile networks 'data roaming' is OFF. It is by default. This should be totally fine _IF_ the networks up there are not the same as yours. Its not good for people who have free data in their home town for example but not the rest of the country on the SAME network.
