    One of my Clients has a Samsung phone on US Cellular and she is traveling to the Domincan Republic for the first time. (I have never visited there either.)

    She wants to make sure the phone is not used for data or voice.

    Is it ture that she doesn't have to do anything ... voice and data will be disabled ... WiFi will still be available?

    If US Cellular is GSM - take the SIM card out.

    Unfortunately USC are CDMA, and the Dominican Republic is one of the places that does have CDMA networks.

    One way would be to speak to USC and ensure that international roaming is not enabled for her account. Or to put it into airplane mode and then turn the WiFi on again.

    ^^^that is the exact advice I gave my wife. She sent with her mom and sister to the Dominican last month. We were able to video chat using hangouts, and there were no nasty surprises when she came home. As you know Thom, I have VZW, so also CDMA / LTE.
