And there is an option to turn the phone/radio bits of the iPhone off
completely - it's something like "airplane settings" -- so you can use
it as an iPod or whatever when you're on a plane, yet the actual RF
section is shut down. You would just do that before you left the
country, and leave it turned off until you get back home.
