    Hello,
    I have a Blackberry 8120 Pearl, OS 4.5, T-Mobile provider, no data plan.
    When I choose Wi-Fi only and am connected to Wi-Fi, the phone can still send and receive calls. When I am out of Wi-Fi there is no phone connection.
    Worked about two hours with a T-Mobile tech rep and could not prevent phone action. We wiped the phone clean and did a reinstall of the OS, and calling/receiving was verified.
    SETTINGS:

    Options>Mobile Network>
    Data Services= ON
    Connection Preference=Wi-Fi Only
    Mobile Network=T-Mobile
    Network Selection Mode=Automatic

    Manage Connections>
    Mobile Network=OFF
    Wi-Fi=ON
    Bluetooth=OFF

    If anyone is knowledgeable of this and can advise how to turn off the phone connection would appreciate the info.
    Thanks,

    .

    If you have Mobile Network OFF, obviously you will not be able to receive calls... You need it ON in order to use the phone functions.

    In theory what you say is correct. Unfortunately you have not understood the topic title nor the settings information posted.

    I am setting the Mobile Network OFF and the phone still connects when I have ONLY a data Wi-Fi connection.
    I am specifically choosing to not have any phone functions, just Wi-Fi.
