Enable Airplane Mode on your iPhone by choosing Settings, then turn airplane mode off.
This will disable the ability to:
Make phone calls
Send or receive email
Browse the Internet
Send or receive text messages
Stream YouTube videos
Get stock quotes
Get maps locations
Get weather reports

When in airplane mode you can still:
Listen to music and watch video
Listen to visual voicemail
Check your calendar
Take or view pictures
Hear alarms
Use the stopwatch or timer
Use the calculator
Take notes
Read text messages and email messages already stored

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Key Benefits of Using an Unlocked BlackBerry


Thousands of people around the world are using unlocked blackberry due to these several reasons,if you are frequent traveler or just cant bear the outrageous costs of expensive contracts then you should seek unlocking your blackberry...

Eliminate Roaming Fees - Roaming charges can drastically increase your base mobile phone bill every month. These roaming charges are based on either your current cell phone contract or the limits of service areas that your provider offers. Unlocking your mobile phone can eliminate roaming fees by allowing you to change the SIM to lower priced networks or local networks when traveling

Increase Resale Value - When you decide to upgrade to a new phone, it also time to sell your old one. Unlocked mobile phones are easier to sell up to 300% more valuable than a locked one because they are compatible with more networks, which means there will be more potential buyers for your phone.

Use Any SIM on Any GSM Network - With an unlocked mobile phone you can change carriers without buying a new phone. This means you can take advantage of the best service package for your current needs. Then if your needs change, you can change providers.

Save with Local Rates - An unlocked mobile phone allows you to take advantage of cheaper rates from rival networks as well as attain an ability to use local service providers while abroad. This will drastically cut down on your tariffs for text messaging and calls home.

Global Connections - Unlocking your phone may also enable dual, tri or even quad band functionality on your mobile handset. This means that your cell phone will be usable in even more countries around the globe as well as being a more valuable resale item. There is no longer any reason to own more than one cell phone handset.

Dual SIM Adaptors - When your phone is unlocked, there is the possibility of applying a dual SIM adapter, which allows your to have two SIM cards in the same handset. This makes your cell phone a much more versatile tool, for example you can separate work and leisure calls. Switching SIM cards can become as easy as turning your cell phone off and on again. You are in complete control of your mobile phone!

Expanded Service Area - Being free of any provider restrictions allows you to increase your areas of service without roaming charges.

Permanent Blackberry Unlocking - Your blackberry never gets relocked and is unlocked forever.

No Warranty Void Risk - Absolutely no risk of damaging your phone and warranty also doesn't get void.

Flexibility to use 3G and Data Settings - Use all Data and 3G settings as given by your Network provider on your unlocked blackberry

WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE HOME ONLY ON MY VALET TRACFONE? DO I NEED TO CHANGE THIS WITH TRAVEL? IS THERE A CATCH?


I believe this choice is to determine where most of calls/texts your will be made to. Choosing Home will designate your home area code as your most frequently called area (no roaming charges) while Travel will probably allow you to choose a different area code as your most frequently called area. When you call out of your chosen area code roaming charges apply. Example, if your current phone area code is 123 and you move to area code 321 you may want to change your Home or Travel designation depending on where most of calls are made to since you can't actually change your phone number.

As for your other question, you don't need wi-fi to text. It's like making a phone call, you simply choose message instead of dialing a number. Phone calls cost 1 unit, while text messages cost .30 units. (Units are the dollars you spend to buy minutes divided by the total number of minutes you receive) Hope that helps.

How to remove roaming from mobile phone


Just go to your phone's settings, and turn off roaming or deselect the roaming check box. The actual location of "roaming" will vary depending on the type of phone you use. It could be under device, call, or even long distance settings. If you still can't find it, check with the phone manufacturer or call your cell phone company for assistance.

My phone is saying digital roam mode when i make an outgoing call, how do i take it off so i can make outgoing call with no problem.


This is pretty much what you need to do. Just turn off all the roaming features. However when you roam it typically means you dont have service through Sprint so dont be surprised if when you turn off roaming capabilities your phone doesn't get ANY signal. Here's the link to your phones manual page 112 is about roaming.


Setting Roam Mode
Your phone allows you to control your roaming
capabilities. By using the Roaming menu option, you
can determine which signals your phone accepts.
Choose from two different settings on your phone to
control your roaming experience.
1. Press > Settings > More... > Roaming > Set Mode.
2. Highlight an option and press .
n Sprint Only to access only the Sprint network and
prevent roaming on other networks.
n Automatic to seek service on the Nationwide Sprint
Network. When Sprint service is unavailable, the
phone searches for an alternate service.
Call Guard
Your phone has two ways of alerting you when you are
roaming off the Nationwide Sprint Network: the
onscreen roaming icon and Call Guard. Call Guard
makes it easy to manage your roaming by requiring an
extra step before you can place or answer a roaming
call. (This additional step is not required when you make
or receive calls while on the Nationwide Sprint Network.)
To turn Call Guard on or off:
1. Press > Settings > More... > Roaming >
Call Guard.
2. Select On or Off.
To place roaming calls with Call Guard on:
1. From standby mode, dial 1 + area code + the
seven-digit number and press .
2. Read the message and press .
Note Call Guard is turned on by default on yourphone.

To answer incoming roaming calls with Call Guard on:
1. Press .
2. Read the message and press .
Data Roam Guard
Depending on service availability and roaming
agreements, yourphone may be able to access data
services while roaming on certain other networks. You
can set your phone to alert you when you are roaming
off the Nationwide Sprint Network and try to use data
services such as messaging.
To set your Data Roam Guard notification:
1. Press > Settings > More... > Roaming >
Data Roaming.
2. Highlight an option and press .
n Always Ask (default mode) sets your phone's Data
Roam Guard feature on. You will see a prompt that
will require you to respond anytime you access
data services while roaming.
n NeverAsk turns your phone's Data Roam Guard
feature off. Your phone will not notify you of your
roaming status when you access data services.
Touse data services when Data Roam Guard is active:
© When a notification appears informing you that data
roam charges may apply, press ROAM (left softkey)
to connect.
Note If the Call Guard feature is set to On, you need to
take extra steps to make and receive roaming calls.

When i call someone they can barely hear me


If it happens to everyone you call it is a problem with the phone itself. Either the mic is damaged or the transmitter is failing. It needs professonal service. Otherwise, there are inexpensive replacements all over eBay.

If it happens from time-to-time with different people it is a connection problem. The only thing you can do is update roaming or restart your phone. If you use Verizon dial *228 and select option 2 to update roaming. Verizon says to do this once per month or after traveling 20+ miles. In the case of non-Verizon phones take out the battery and then put it back in and turn on the phone.

If it only happens with one person, their phone has a problem, not yours.

If this helps please vote for my solution.

Wheelchair tips


Here are some tips

  • When booking your flight: Use a travel agent who is experienced with planning trips for travelers with disabilities.
  • Make your reservation far in advance.
  • If possible, choose an airline with planes that have 30 seats or more - larger planes offer more accessibility.
  • Pick a flight with no changeovers. Call ahead to alert the reservation clerk that you will be traveling with a wheelchair.
  • Arrange for boarding assistance or an aisle chair to get to your seat. And if you can't walk, request an aisle chair during your flight for bathroom use.
  • You should arrive at the airport At least an hour in advance so you can store your fold-up wheelchair on-board. (There is usually room for one wheelchair on a first-come basis).
  • When possible, use gel batteries, as wet batteries must be removed and stored in a separate sealed container.

Roaming indicator


Reason for the lock code is because roaming charges are costly. In case you lose your phone and the person that has travels out of the country with it, he/she will not be able to make calls.
