I'm going to be going overseas in a month or so and I plan on taking my Droid with me. I don't want to incur any crazy possible roaming charges, so is it possible to turn on just wi-fi without any other connections? I'd like to be able to use the wi-fi (and I'm hoping the Skype client will be out by then) without having to worry about any crazy cdma connections.
I just got back from the Caribbean where I did exactly that, and it worked without a hitch. Just be sure to not power your phone down at any point, as it will turn the cellular radio back on after booting up (regardless of whether you were in airplane mode or not when you shut it down), causing "unwanted" texts, vmails, etc to come through.
