Sorry if this is the wrong area to post this (but this is where I hang out) and sorry if this has already been asked (the search feature sucks/I suck at the search feature). I am going to the Olympics this summer and was wondering what my phone was capable of, if anything, overseas and how many arms or legs I would have to give Verizon to make it happen.

I know I can strictly use wifi and all of the functionality available with that, so at a minimum that's my plan. And probably my only option but I figured I would ask before I called Verizon. As always, thanks for your help guys.

If that is a Verizon Nexus then its not happening across the pond if its not on Wi-Fi. Plain and simple. CDMA /= GSM.

The only Verizon LTE phones that are Global via an update are the Droid 4, HTC Rezound, Razr Maxx and something else. I can't remember but the Gnex wan't on the list. Just rent a GSM phone from them or get a prepaid

I've never done this personally, but you can save maps and web pages (perhaps other stuff) offline and still use them over there. It's a general ICS feature.

Oh and don't forget about Skpe etc. when you're in WiFi for calls. VoIP calls are a few pennies. $25 has lasted me many months now.
