Will Cellular Data off stop incoming text messages with pic/video?

I am traveling internationally.  I am going to turn off my iphone 6S Cellular Data and mostly use my phone for messaging when I'm in a Wifi hotspot and mostly to other iphone users.  However, when I am not in Wifi, I want to make to block any incoming message that has image or video (mms), or if not block it, strip out the multimedia.  This is so I don't incur any possible charges.  I assume with my Cellular Data turned off, it should be impossible for me to recieve the mms message while not in Wifi.  Is this right? What exactly would happen to a text message with a photo attached to it if sent to me while not in wifi, with Cellular Data off?

Do you have the option for wifi calling? I would suggest turning it on for your trip.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Thank you for the suggestion. I'm planning on that aw well. Not sure what it has to do with my question, but I appreciate it.
