I've looked at international data packages on ATT and they look pricey. $24.99 for 50 mb is going to add up terribly quickly with the amount of email I get. I can live with getting a cheap phone in india for the month I'm there unless anyone knows if an international phone plan only is reasonable. here's what I want to be certain of. 1. putting the phone in airplane mode will disable incoming calls so I won't get roaming charges- even for voice messages when I don't answer 2. Even if I take it out of airplane mode for a moment- with ATT I wont' get charged for incoming texts and I can opt out of choosing to send texts for 50 cents a pop 3. Turn off data roaming to be absolutely sure of not getting charged for internet/emails etc. 4. wifi will work in airplane mode 5. If i choose to forward my mobile phone to another phone where I get voice messages by email i will not get charged for any calls that are routed this way. Finally- is there any other way to turn off the phone or should forwarding calls cover it. Any other feedback about using iphone India would be great.
