    So I am out of the states for several months and I cancelled my AT&T service to save money. I have heard that you can place your iPhone (mines a 3G) into Airplane mode, turn on Wi-Fi and I should be able to connect to the internet even with the service being terminated. Every time I try however it isn't working. Is this true, should I be able to or is it a myth?

    Thanks

    airplane mode turns off all antennas, you wouldn't be in airplane mode if wifi is on

    Actually you can turn airplane mode on, then reactivate Wifi while keeping the 3G/2G signal off.

    So then with my AT&T service cancelled I should be able to go into Airplane mode and connect to a wi-fi and have the iPhone working. Awesome

    Yes, you can have airplane mode on and Wi-Fi on. You just won't have any cellular anything.
