smartphone internet off?

I already posted this but it disappeared! Try again!
My contract is up soon & im thinking of upgrading to a smartphone - dont know what make yet. What Id like to know is : can I disconnect the internet connection from these phones but still have it wifi enabled?
Id like to do this to avoid the scare story mega charges you read about! - I could then still go online but free thru wifi.
Its unfortunate that the providers insist on charging by MB instead of minutes so no one knows how much data ( & therefore cost) they are using. If they charged by the minute we could easily keep track!
I read Vodafone Australia are offering a plan which does charge by time. hopefully they might do the same here?

Now most running phones are smart phone. Every company has launched a series of smart phone. The most popular Smartphones are of Samsung galaxy. It is not problem of particular smart phone. You have to check your phone settings and update software.

As per my opinion you have to use some branded mobile phone like HTC, Samsung etc. You have to check your internet surfing speed. you have to buy mobile with 3G speed. Vodafone is best service provider and i recomended to use it's internet service.

LOL! yeh thanks again for reply however no one has yet answered my question! Will most of these phones operate perfectly well on wifi only if, & this is really my query, you switch off the internet service?
I dont want an internet service via the network ONLY via wifi. I (like many others!) am scared of running up a massive bill by being connected to the internet. Especially with a smartphone which from all accounts is usually left connected all the time its switched on!!!
