I am going to San Diego / Tijuana briefly next week and am trying to decide how to use my phone while I am down there.  I will have access to WiFi most of the time, but not always.  I have heard that simply turning your phone on while in the states etc will incur roaming charges.  Is that true?  Can I receive texts free? Or will that be charged as well?  I know there are add on's available, but being as frugal as I am just looking for the best bang for my buck.  Any advice / suggestion would be great

You just need to block data because thats what will incur you charges while you aren't actually using your phone. Receiving texts is free and you only get charged for a call if you answer it or make one

Most phones have data roaming off be default. Check your model to be sure it's off.
