If you turn off cellular data, but leave wifi on, then applications can still use internet resources when wifi service is available.  If you put the device into "airplane mode" then all data radios will be turned off, so no data can be used at all.

I use airplane mode when I fly since the use of cellular devices is/was (not sure of the current status with the FAA/airlines) since it also turns off the cellular call capabilities
