    Question How do I know which apps/functions will work w/o 3G or Wi-Fi?

    As we discussed in the recent traveling-to-Europe thread, my li'l Fassie will be pretty much useless on vacation. BUT, I do have a lot of info in my phone that I would still like to keep with me, but I have no idea which apps will be functional and which ones won't. For example, Evernote? The Currency Converter? My calendar?

    I *presume* the difference is whether the app and all its info are stored in my phone (like my Pet Master or Notes apps???) -or- if the app's info is received from the internet. Am I right about this? And if so, how would I know which it is?

    (If this is a really stooopid question, please forgive!)

    THANK YOU!

    There are no stupid questions!
    The only apps you won't be able to use are the ones that require internet access, such as Google Maps, etc. Most should work fine.
    But wifi should take care of that even...
    (Most likely Verizon location services will be the main problem....correct me if I'm wrong RS)

    Thanks, CR,
    But I thought I was told in the other thread that I won't even have wi-fi access in Europe. So that leaves me with one pretty darn dead li'l Fassy! If I'd have known this (or thought of this) before I got my phone, I would have gotten the HTC Incredible 2! *Dang!!!*

    You can use wifi anywhere there is wifi access. It's like having a laptop, ipod. Mostly it will be at airports, hotel, restaurants etc.
