How to block texts and calls internationally (android)

Can't find this answer in the forums.

 

I plan to use a phone on wifi only when traveling. How do I block incoming messages so I don't incur extra text charges?

 

Do I have to remove the SIM card, or do texts use wifi only if you turn on Airplane mode and keep wifi on?

Body - Keep your phone in Airplane mode AND go into your settings and toggle off both roaming voice and roaming data. In an emergency you can always toggle on roaming voice for making calls or basic text messages at minimal expense if you are not able to find a WiFi connection.
