Any recent reports that this is a still a free option?
This exactly! If you can see all you notifications, but you cannot get into the apps themselves without WIFI. And iMessage works, but not no pictures.Basically you can iMessage and will receive notifications but I was not able to do anything more without activating the WiFi package. Example, I could see MLB notifications of scores but if I tapped the notification to the app it indicated no connection. Also, no pictures in texts. It was very useful though as we could text back home. Wish I had not bought the ATT cruise phone package. Could have saved money for more drinks.
Yes. Airplane mode and WiFi with the DCL app. iMessages are in blue. Texts in green won’t send.Not too technologically advanced here..... When we cruise, I usually turn all data off on my iphone and then put it in airplane mode. I turn on wifi to use the DCL app. To use imessage through the free wifi, do I just pull up a text message like usual to text any other iphone?
