    Wi-Fi is nothing to do with your phone contract and data plan. If you have your own wi-fi at home, you can connect to it with your phone and use as much as you want. It won't affect your contract. However you will be using data from your broadband plan. Though these are usually 10-15GB a month or more, so your phone won't make any meaningful impact on that.

    you can do everything. but things involving data (weather, internet, etcetc) can only be done with wifi.

    yup you can only go online when there is wifi hotspot nearby. you can't go online as and when you like it.

    Usually with no data plan you can still use mobile internet, but it just costs A LOT. Or at least that's how it works round here.

    You may want to disable mobile data completely and only enable it when absolutely necessary.

    Still, Android really works best with access to mobile data, if you can find a plan with even 100MB of data, it would be a big advantage.

    +1 for this.

    If your network provider has data available but a data plan is not included in your talk plan then using data will usually cost a lot. You can use wi-fi for free when in range of a router or hotspot, but I agree with the other posts to disable Mobile Internet on your phone to avoid additional data charges.

    It's worth checking with your provider how much the data would cost too.
