    I'm going to South Africa for 7 days and was told by Sprint my Pre would not work.

    Anyone know if I can still use it when in range of wifi? Will apps work? Etc.

    Leave it on Airplane Mode and turn WiFi on. Make sure you don't turn airplane mode off by accident, roaming charges are expensive!

    sprint pre is cdma, south africa is only gsm, so in turn he wont receive signal so he won't receive charges but will drain the hell out of his battery. so just turn on airplane mode and turn on wifi after and ur good

    Try it while you're still in the states. The airplane mode thing, works like a charm.

    But you can't receive text or phone calls when in airplane mode with wifi on, right?

    Nope, you will only get data: web browsing, facebook, email, etc. Airplane mode means no phone radio at all.

    Can anyone tell me whether a GSM pre/pixi can be used with a South African SIM card? My son needs a phone that will work as a tether and both are very cheap unlocked on Amazon.
