I now live in Thailand and have a local simcard with DTAC in my unlocked phone and use the TU app for my contract allowances.
I pay the equivalent of £8 a month for a good data allowance from which I tether my TabPro.
Wifi is plentiful and always free.
My advice would be to switch off mobile data completely unless you get a local sim which are aviable in any 7-11 store.
Using an o2 simcard then data is an obscene £6/MB.
Have a great time, Thailand is an amazing country.

I discourage the use of data roaming because roaming often uses IP network of home mobile network so it causes a high latency and unresponsive web pages. I suggest you check if there is any local SIM available for visitors.
