Did you actually try that?  I think mode-specific key bindings always
override global bindings, so the above will not affect C mode. for
example.

But if you want to bind TAB in Text mode, then try the below:

  (define-key text-mode-map "\C-i" 'self-insert-command)

You will need to do this in a text-mode-hook.
