    going to Bahamas in a few weeks and want to know the best way to save money on data and calls? in the past with Android i would get the International package and Verizon would pro rate it and it was like $5-6 a day. plus $3.99 per minute for calls. With iPhone i am going to use Skype to text and call which is like .03 cents a minute. and use the wifi in the hotel.

    how do i turn off all data on this phone so i make sure i dont get any data charges while i am there?

    also, is this the best way and cheapest way to use this phone internationally?:confused::confused::eek:

    Assuming it's a 4s you can also tell Verizon you are travelling internationally and they will unlock your iPhone for use with a SIM card. Then you could buy a cheap prepaid SIM card just for use while you're there (but make sure to turn off cellular data in the settings). You would have a different phone number of course but if you will be making local phone calls it would be convenient.

    Here is some more info.
