    There's an app available on the market called APNdroid (it's free) and it lets you deactivate your mobile/3G data, so you can use that to make sure when you're on your trip, you won't incurr any data charges. You can also just disable data roaming through settings>wireless and networks>mobile networks>data roaming.

    In response to your Wifi question, everything should work fine over wifi and if the wifi is free you won't have to pay a cent to do your instant messaging etc.

    Also, you won't be able to send text messages in the standard way over wifi, you can only do that on a cellular network, so you'd get charges.

    maybe you can look into finding a web based sms option? I've never needed it.

    But as I said, your yahoo/AIM will work over wifi.
