Keep in mind that when you place your device into airplane mode, you will need to turn on WiFi manually in order to get a connection. Airplane mode turns off all communication radios. 1. No to unlimited text. Texting requires a connection to a cellular network. You would need to use an online messaging service like Skype, Whatsapp, Viber, Facebook Messenger, etc., to keep in touch with people. 2. You may check your email over any data connection, so it will work over WiFi. 3. You may surf the web over WiFi. 4. Yes, this would make your phone function like an iPod. Hopefully this helps. Have a great stay abroad.

To add to #1, While SMS will not work, as long as you are connected to WiFi you can send iMessages to users

To add to Boolanger's point: iMessage will work this way, but only with contacts that are able to receive iMessages (i.e. those with iPhones, iPods, iPads, or Mac computers).
