I am travelling to the US for 15 days. I plan to shut off my data but would like to occassionally turn it on to check text messages. What add ons should I purchase?

You can just use pay-per-use texts at $5 per 100 texts. Make sure your data roaming is off.

I only use my phone for local calls and texts, I don't use data. Is there something I need to turn off?

You may wish to turn of cellular data on your phone so you don't inadvertently use pay-per-use data.

Would I be able to receive texts without roaming?

Yes, but not iMessages if you use iPhone.
