    You may want to get your phone unlocked and just get some AT&T prepaid minutes when you get over here. That way you can still talk and text. You should also contact your carrier to see their voice and data roaming rates to see if they have any international plans that may suit you for the time you are away.

    Settings>General>Network>

    Set data roaming to OFF.

    Or just turn data to OFF all together.

    In the settings,
    Turn data roaming to OFF
    You can use Wi Fi though
    +1 on the suggestion about buying a prepaid SIM Card
