Hi all.

I'm abroad at the moment and not utilizing my iPhone for calls/data, just music and camera, so I have it set on Airplane mode. I can still use Wi-Fi, correct? And not be charged for any data or whatever?

I believe I can, but I just wanted to double check before I start trying. Thanks!

iPhone 3g

    Yes - since firmware version 2.0 I believe, Apple included the ability to enable wi-fi access with Airplane mode enabled. This disables all iPhone radios except wi-fi - cell/data, GPS, and bluetooth.

    With wi-fi access enabled with Airplane mode on, it is impossible to place or receive any calls, the same for SMS, or access the internet via the cellular network since the wi-fi is enabled only when doing so.

    Yes - the only way you would incur charges is from the hotspot, if it's not free; no charges from your carrier, though.
