Do not turn off the Data Services. Just turn off your mobile network connection in the Manage Connections screen.

Go to Options > Advanced > Browser and set your browser to Hotspot, and save. Now, use the browser with the Wifi connection for surfing the internet.

You won't. And you also won't get charged for roaming data without a contract.
