@I'm traveling overseas soon and am wondering how to send all calls to VM so as to not incur the exorbitant international rates ($2.49/minute in India!). I plan to purchase a data package so I can check e-mail etc; but don't want to receive calls. I learned from customer support today that I will be billed @ $2.49/min as soon as the phone starts ringing (not actual talk-time!?). So, I really want to just turn off the 'phone' part of the iPhone. any ideas?

Yes, it's an unconditional forwarding — it doesn't matter whether the phone is on or off, it'll never ring and you'll never be charged the roaming fees for these calls, they'll just use your anytime minutes.
Thanks for the quick response! In your opinion, does this essentially save me from being billed for any calls to my cell? In other words, does *21 keep the call in the cloud and away from the actual device? thanks again.

Yes, this is a GSM standard, so as long as AT&T service supports it it'll work for all phones. If AT&T decides to drop it, it won't work from any phone.
