Text messaging doesn’t use “data” as defined by cell phone networks– if you can make and receive calls, you can send text messages, even if you can’t connect to the internet. To disable data on an iPhone, look in Settings under General –> Network.

An iphone is a smart phone, so you are forced to pay data charges for internet and texting, even if you don’t use it. I asked Verizon about that a few days ago, and that is what they told me. I was thinking about getting a smart phone, but …

How can I turn off all network on my iPhone 4 and only use WiFi overseas? I will be taking my iPhone 4 to both Europe and Asia this summer and I want to be able to use it for music, photos and to connect to any free Wifi but I do not want to be charged anything on my phone bill. I have read that you can turn off the 3G, Data Roaming and Cellular Data in the General Setting but I have heard that this only disables certain functions such as picutre/video messaging and the internet but that text messages and phone calls can still get through. Is this true? And if it is, is it possible to turn off all calling and messaging without activating Airplane mode so that I can still use Wifi?

This is fraudulent for Verizon to do imho! They tell you you have free texting but it %100 has to use your data. They say well we say its free texting not free data. I say BULLS#IT! This is fraudgulent! You can’t have one without the other, hence the big LIE! Someone needs to congrigate with every Verzon user and sue their asses on the behalf of every verizon user. There is also fraud in their sales of their phones. I was charged sales tax on the $499, but my phone cost me $99…What? How do you pay sales tax on an item of $37.40 for each phone when the tax should have been %7.5 in my area ($7.47)??? This is also massivly fraudgulent! They could care less about their tiny little customer! They are grossly mis leading & sniping every dollar they think they are owed. I hope they get it handed to them!
