Using my Blackberry Abroad by WIFI only... HELP!

I've been researching this topic and speaking to people from Vodafone customer services and I seem to be getting different answers!

 

I'm going abroad for 6 month and want to use my Blackberry for WIFI only to avoid any overseas charges. I was planning on turning the mobile network off - this means I won't be able to send/recieve calls, SMS etc. right? Then I was going to leave data services on but off whilst roaming and turn on the WIFI. I did this and tested it out at home and it connected fine. However, I've been told that I need to turn data services off otherwise I will incur charges from GPRS, do they mean data services off and off whilst roaming? Because I did this and tried to connect via WIFI and it didn't work, or do they just mean turn data services off whilst roaming?!
