use abroad but don't take calls

I am travelling to the USA on Sunday and want to have my phone to show passes & tickets etc.  But I don't want to make or receive calls. Can I ask if this is going to be possible, If I will incur charges and if so what do I need to do?

Thank you in advance

Hello

Of course you can do not enable roaming on your mobile account and then you can use wireless as normal, I do pretty much the same when I go abroad.

Re: use abroad but don't take calls

Taking the SIM out of the phone for the holiday duration is safest bet for it to never connect and occur charges, phone will still connect to WiFi for what you need.
