    Can anyone help? I'm going away at the end of the week and want to be able to connect to the free hotel Wi-Fi so I can send messages and pictures using the WhatsApp application and not get charged for using anything. I'm not bothered about access to calls or texts or surfing the web but would like to use this application to stay in touch with friends and family. Is there a way I can cut off all my connections but just use the free Wi-Fi? I really need an idiots guide for my Blackberry 9780. I don't want to come back from Mexico to find I've got a bill of hundreds or even thousands from O2.

    Hi. Thanks for this. Do I not get charged for still being connected to the mobile network or do I uncheck the mobile network box too?

    if you uncheck the mobile network, you won't be able to make any calls... if you don't mind that, go ahead and do that,

    the WIFI can not work if you disconnect the data service.

    Wrong answer. In Manage Connections, you can select Wi-Fi only. I would take my battery out whenever I left the Wi-Fi area though, but that's just me. I wouldn't want to be tempted to use my phone without Wi-Fi.
