Wondering if anyone can offer advice.
I am going to France for a few weeks with IPhone 3GS locked to Rogers.
My daughter has an unlocked cell so I plan to buy a local pay-as-you-go sim when we get there for local communications.
But for my IPhone, it would be nice to have as much functionality as possible with no added costs.
I plan on putting phone into “airplane” mode, then switch wifi back on.
When I do this, however, I loose GPS capabilities. Is the GPS tied into a “data” connection of some kind? On a stand-alone Garmin, there is no data plan but GPS still works.
Can someone please help me to understand my options?
