when I travel where only my phone network is available, I want to turn my data to off so I don't get any updates. If i do that can I still receive calls and texts from others?

Turning Data Off only disconnects Internet connection. It doesnt effect Calls/Texts.


Yes you will still be able to send/receive phone calls and texts. If you are using any messaging apps that rely on internet then those won't work Your "radio" or "modem" is what controls the phone and texting. You just won't have any internet.
