Going to Jamaica, few questions

If I turn my phone to airplane mode and make sure the phone is not allowing data roaming, should I be fine to use it as a camera and internet only on wifi? Will wifi still work in airplane mode? I do not want to get charges for people sending me texts or calls. Hotel is supposed to have wifi in the lobby.

Thanks for the reply and testing budone


      Turning off data roaming and turning on WiFi will allow you to use the internet while in Jamaica. Yes you can use wifi while in airplane mode. Click here for a link about using your device in Jamaica in case you need to make call or text messages while there.


Enjoy your trip and Thank you
