Default Disabling data/internet via cell network

Hey everyone,

Recently got an LG Optimus One. A bit new to the the whole smartphone/Android systems, so still finding my way around it.

Since I'm on a prepaid plan, I want to use my phone only for calls & texts over my cell provider network; all data/internet usage (email / internet / etc) should be restricted to wifi only.

If I go Settings -> Wireless & networks -> Mobile networks -> Uncheck 'Data enabled' , will that do the trick? (So the phone can only get online via wifi if it's available, and not the cell network at all). And if the aforementioned Data Enabled setting is unchecked, will I still be able to receive texts?
