iPhone in Europe

I understand I won't be able to make calls using my US based Verizon i5 in Europe, but will the Wi-Fi work? I assume I can toggle the cellular data to off, but connect to the internet, mail etc via Wi-Fi.

Can anyone confirm this?

Thanks-

FH

WiFi is basically the same across the world, so that will definitely work.

This. But I think WiFi is a better choice since it's a big hassle to get a new SIM for each country you enter.
