How to turn off cell phone/data on iPhone 4 but use WiFi?

I am travelling to Turks and Caicos and they do have CDMA coverage - but if I leave my cell phone on I will get charged for any incoming text messages or phone calls.  Yet I want to be able to use my iPhone 4 for WiFi, which is free in the hotel  Is there a way to turn off the cell phone without turning off the WiFi, like Airplane mode does?  Its easy on AT&T iPhones since this is a big deal for them as their phones are true world phones - but there are times when you will travel with an iPhone 4 and can get hit with huge roaming fees.  For example - $0.50 per text message outgoing!!!

So - is there a way to turn it off but use the WiFi?  Thanks!!

Very easy just turn on airplane mode then turn wifi on after turning airplane mode on! Works for me.
