This is a nifty trick to used to turn an old droid (no longer with Verizon service) into a "Droid-Touch" device with WI-FI only and still supports Bluetooth headsets. I just did this but expect to find that my battery life
to be longer. The Two year old battery I have is rarely good for a full day with modest use with the cell radio on. hopefully it will last longer without that drain.
Dial *#*#INFO#*#* (info is 4636)
A magic menu appears:
Select "Phone information"
click "Turn off Radio".
