buying 3Gs w/ no data plan

I've read a batch of posts but being an iPhone novice I am still (and paranoid based on some comments about Fido!) a bit unclear on 2 things:

1. if i buy a new 3Gs w/ a contract, must i purchase a data plan AND is there no charge for having it blocked so i can only use WIFI?

Based on prior posts, it sounded like you have to purchase a data plan if you buy the iPhone and if you want it blocked, you may have to pay $100 for blocking.

2. as long as i have no data plan and the 3G logo does not appear on the screen, am i safe in using as much WIFI without charges from Fido?

Based on prior posts, it sounded like Fido doesn't guarantee blockage and could easily charge hundreds of dollars anyway.

Thanks.

found this reply from sniper4u:
Yes you can cancel your data with Fido.
If you got your data plan while buying the 3G IPhone, there is no charge for cancelling data with Fido.
I have reported this on several posts already.
The pre sale condition of buying a 3G IPhone with data at Fido stated that the DECF (data early cancellation fee) does not apply to the IPhone.
I have a copy of this if you need it.

so basically, it sounds like i MUST get a voice/data plan when buying a new iPhone and then just cancel the data for $100 a month later?
