Enable iPhone Airplane mode, keep WiFi while traveling

Traveling internationally with an iPhone can be extremely expensive. Even if you arrange for an international plan with your provider, it’s possible to find a staggering bill at the end of the month. Your best bet is to disable cellular data and restrict Internet access to Wi-Fi, but how can you be sure you’ve set your iPhone up properly? It’s easy with Airplane Mode and the Wi-Fi settings.

Handy tip from Dave Caolo on how to avoid great big roaming charges on your iPhone. I actually didn’t know you could enable Airplane Mode, but still have Wi-Fi turned on…I guess it makes sense when you consider you can have inflight Wi-Fi on some flights now, it just never clicked in my head.
