I live in Canada and am traveling to the states. I have an iPhone 4 and am putting on a text and minutes travel package but not a data plan. I have a couple questions -
1. How do I turn off the roaming on my data without turning off my cellular?
2. I've been told in Vegas that there are tons of hotspots for free wifi. Is there a way I can leave my phone in a mode that will find them and notify me without having to manually check or change settings all the time?

Although this thread is quite old, I'd like to add a little update since I came across it .
Here are some roaming tips to help you stay in control of your roaming charges on your next trip outside Canada:
Note: If you have been subscribed to Fido for less than 90 days, you will be restricted from calling outside the country you are visiting (except for calling back to Canada). If you plan to make international calls from anywhere outside North America, call 6-1-1 free of charge from your Fido phone or 1-888-481-3436 to activate international calling. If your account has a credit limit, click here to know more about the possible restrictions.
LTE technology is currently available for compatible LTE devices in select travel destinations. Outside of LTE coverage areas, Fido LTE devices will seamlessly fall back to 4G HSPA+ or EDGE technologies where data roaming is supported. Check out if your travel destination has LTE coverage here.
All Fido phones and devices are compatible with network frequencies in the U.S. For other countries, verify the coverage availability and the network frequencies of your destination to make sure that your phone will work. Not sure what frequencies your phone or device supports? Verify your phone frequency. If its frequencies are not compatible with the network you will be using, you can consult our great selection of phones and buy one in a Fido point of sale. Don't forget, you can even use your FidoDollars™ to reduce the price of your new phone!
Also, don't forget to check the electricity voltage of your destination and buy and adapter for your phone charger if needed!
Enjoy your trip & hope this helps!
