How to disable iPhone’s cellular network and use wifi connection only

This is very useful if you are in a low cellular coverage area but you
have a very good wifi coverage as I had this morning. Most of mining
area, especially remote one in Indonesia, would most likely have this
condition. Keeping your iPhone to automatically search for cellular
network would drain its battery within no time. I hope this trick,
which I put in this post as a reminder for me, would be useful for

Go to Settings > Airplane Mode, switch it On
This will switch all iPhone’s radio off.

Go to Settings > Wi-Fi, switch it On
Select a hotspot.

That’s it. That was not so difficult.
