    Thanks Will this turn off phone calls because I do not want to use phone for incoming or outgoing calls? ( trying to avoid roaming charges)

    You can also turn off Data Roaming in the same section, so it won't find a local carrier and connect your calls.

    OK Thanks for the info. Now if I get any voicemail and do not try to listen to these messages ...are there any charges incurred?

    As far as I know, provided you don't dial into voicemail, you will NOT be charged.

    I just went to Vegas from Toronto with mine.

    I kept Data Roaming unchecked and Data Traffic checked.
    incoming sms is free (even if you get a vmail notification msg)

    Turn on wifi and you'll be good to go when you need to connect to wifi.

    Don't forget, a lot of public wifi places like hotels make you open browser first to agree to there wifi network before apps like facebook and twitter will work.
