Bringing Cell Phone overseas, just to use Wi-Fi?
SO I will be traveling to Hong Kong and China (Nanjing/Shanghai) in mid June, and am debating taking my phone along, not to use to call/text, but to surf on wi-fi. I don't want to bring my chunky laptop for space and security reasons, and unfortunately I don't have a tablet/ipad either.
I don't want to run into problems with roaming etc. Is there a way just to use the phone (I have a Samsung Galaxy S2 HD LTE, with Bell) with WiFi and to disable the "phone part" and data?
I guess if it is too tricky, or won't work, I can always find an apple store, internet cafe, or if I stay at a hostel they have a communal computer. I just want to use it to facebook and check email occasionally (don't need it for business or serious reasons!)
Thanks all in advance for the help/advice.
