    I am going to travel abroad tomorrow and I am not interested in any type of prepaid sim for data and that stuff. Just I don't want a massive bill when I come back (no roaming) but I want to use Wi-Fi. Just putting the iPhone in Airplane Mode and turning on Wi-Fi is enough?

    Turn off cellular roaming just to be safe. But yes, do as you state and you can use the phone on wifi.

    Yep that'll stop all roaming charges for sure.

    Data roaming should be off by default but you can check in Settings --> Cellular.

    That said, I find that it's often worth paying for a basic data plan when I'm abroad so I can send and receive texts and check maps and look places up on the go. Data packages start at about $30 and can be activated for just the month you are traveling. I keep Data Roaming off and reset my data counter on the phone, then only turn it on when I actively need to use it.
