Techie question:

I'm going on a cruise next week (yay!). What settings should I change on my phone to prevent accidental ginormous charges while still being able to have it powered on and use the shipboard app (free) and the camera? Voice, text, email, and other data (I have some apps that like to give me random updates) need to be prevented from spontaneously happening. I have AT&T and an iPhone 5 - the older version - if that matters.

TIA!

I don't know Apple. But if you turn it on airplane mode that will do what you need....except it will disable wifi.

So you need to see if iphone has a way to shut off your mobile data connection(the one you pay the phone company for, not the wifi). I'm pretty sure as long as you don't answer any calls, you won't be charged for it ringing. I don't think it matters for texting.

What ship are you going on with free wifi? Its always been pretty expensive on the ships that i've been on

NCL Getaway. The wifi in general isn't free, but their app is free. You can get the day's activities and stuff on it, and "text" with other app users on the ship.

AT&T chat person says to turn on airplane mode, support site says I can then turn on Wi-Fi, chat person says I can send & receive texts only from other Apple users via wi-fi. Hmmmm.....

All good info.

Up till now, my understanding of airplane mode was that it disconnected all connectivity while turned on. Did not think you could turn any of it back on individually, but I just tried it and it worked.

I turned on airplane mode and it shut off phone service, mobile data, and wifi.

Then tried to make a call. Would not allow it.
Tried to turn mobile data back on. Would not come back on.
Tried to turn wifi back on. It came on and successfully connected.

As for sending and receiving texts with other apple users using wifi, don't think that's gonna work on closed network with no access to apple's servers.

Perfect. Thanks for testing it for me.

I don't care about texting, I'm not planning on doing any of it during my vacation. I just thought it was interesting that they told me that I would be able to.

CHILDREN dancing on graves, not adults and Not at Arlington National Cemetery. Not in the catacombs of a church,

So yeah, I do think some graves are more special than others, sue me!
