    I only know of a way to turn all communication off, like for when you're on a plane or turning data services off from options.

    Take care

    I know you can disallow data, but I do not think you can disallow phone and still allow data. I could be wrong on this, it won,t be the first time !!

    Maybe you could pick up a local SIM for calls and switch back to your original SIM for e-mail use.

    You don't get charged air time unless you make or receive a call. So.... Just don't answer or call and you can use days services as much as you want. Right? ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Maybe you should talk to your service provider about this (we all know how that works out most of the time !) Last year I got into a billing dispute with Sprint and I held out a week before I started loosing my mind not being able to make calls on my blackberry. The funny thing about it though was that for that entire week I could not make or receive phone calls or text messages. But, I could still send and receive emails as if nothing ever happened. I don't know if it was a mistake on Sprints part (me being able to receive and send emails) or if that is how the data plans works outside of the voice/call plan.

    Have all calls forward to voicemail, so then your phone will never ring.

    if your on the Cingular network, and your device is on and rings to set ammount of times and gets forwarded to voicemail you'll be charged for that person leaving a message in your voicemail. most likely for just a minute of whatever the rate would be in the country you'd be in.

    Voila! No data either! = Not a solution to the OP's problem.
