How to Disable All Data and Service [Solved]
Hey guys, I'm headed to Japan for about six weeks and wanted to bring my phone (to use basically as a mini-tablet). However, I want to disable all the 3G, Internet, Wireless, Service, or whatever else it could be called, so that I can still use WiFi, but I don't rack up huge phone bills for international usage.
I am currently on thekraven's CM9 alpha 9, but I'm tempted to just flash something more stable for while I'm there. Either way, there should be a way to turn off all those things.
Could anyone assist this process?
(p.s. if I do decide to flash a different ROM, I suppose I could use a baseband other than ZVD. In that case, would that work to get rid of everything that could incur costs?)

I'm not sure if this is exactly what you're looking for, idk the difference between this and airplane mode but in the settings you can disable data &/or roaming data.
Go to Settings- wireless & networks- scroll all the way down & click mobile networks, and check data enabled, data roaming, or roam guard.
Hope this helps and if anyone dies know the difference between this and airplane mode please reply!

Re: How to Disable All Data and Service
Yeah, you could just leave it on airplane mode, but i would take measures to ensure that it's difficult to turn airplane mode off so you don't do so accidentally. what i mean is make sure you don't have a status bar toggle or a widget toggle for it.
If it were me, I would nandroid the ROM, double flash stock zvd update.zip, upgrade to zvh, root & custom recovery zvh, then restore the ROM on top of zvh radio (;
But of course, that's only because I like doing things that are too complicated and completely unnecessary :P
