You are going to want to turn data and/or data roaming off if you dont want to incure data charges.

Yes. You will not recieve iMessages though. Yes you should turn off iMessages as well and delete any conversation you have with someone in which you have sent them an i messagd.

To add to topic, iMessage will work via wifi given that data would be disabled. With roaming data disabled, Allan is right, talk and text will work, and you will not incur roaming data charges.
