You can't disable it at the account level, realistically. You'll have to just deactivate the cell radio by taking out your SIM card or putting your phone in Airplane mode.

Expanding on Jonathan :)

ANDROID - Simply Hold down the power button and select airplane mode. This will disable all wireless communications, wifi, bluetooth.

You can specifically turn features, such as WiFi and Bluetooth back on in foreign country's.

iPHONE - On iOS 7, simply flick from the bottom to reveal the control center. Here you can tab the airplane mode and voila, no more cellular.

WiFi and Bluetooth can be turned back on.

Hope this Helps!!!
