No, but leave it in Airplane mode or remove your SIM card if you’re really concerned..

Airplane mode may have some data leakages some times, so you're best bet is to disable cellular data AND airplane mode.

If you take out your sim there is no way they can charge you to be safe and if you have iphone they have that wifi assist thing that can use data when wifi signal is weak. In that case you will be charged a ridiculous amount.

Restarting a phone can also incur data leakage, so removing the sim is really the only sure way to guarentee no roaming charges
