Is it possible to remove the verizon S4 phone (radios-I think that's what it's called) so the phone will only connect using a WiFi connection.

Basically I want to remove the Verizon connection so I can use the phone on WiFi only.

I'm going overseas and want to still use my phone for it's WiFi capabilities. Maybe use Skype or Hangouts for any calls.

Phone is rooted with stock settings.

Remove SIM card maybe? Turn off mobile data and leave Wi-Fi on? Much easier than trying to pull or erase the radios.

I believe Verizon uses RUIM (i.e. sim card) for the S4 for both CDMA and LTE, so I'd agree with the above that removing the SIM should be the easiest way to de-link from a Verizon account.

I agree- remove the SIM and you won't get any data. However, I'd also disable mobile data. And, removing the SIM will probably pop up a warning that there's no SIM.

To stop network data, open Settings, More networks, Mobile networks. Remove the checkbox from "Mobile data" and you won't use any mobile data.

Airplane mode is a simple way also.
