    Going to Barbados and don't want to pay the expense of the international data plan. I'm not planning on making calls or texts but want the ability to use wifi. I can use wifi to check e-mails and surf the web, but how do I make sure I'm using wifi and not the cellular data plan?

    turn off "mobile network". either by holding the end call button and its the selection on the bottom...or use the widget.
