BB 9780 data settings and info please

Im planning in getting a BB 9780 for my wife. She will only add The Robber$ $15 plan for BBM and email (unless Rogers will add 50MB data for free)

my plan is to buy the phone, insert my SIM card to download any update that can only be obtained through BB Online Store, then disable internet via cellular networks.

The questions are:
1. Is my plan can be done
2. If so, how can I disable cellular-data browsing (so there won't be accidental data usage)
3. Is it possible to use only wifi and NOT be charged by Rogers? (I've read rumours stating that if she doesn't have dataplan with Rogers, even if she can browse using wifi she'll still be charged by Rogers... Which doesn't make sense, but hey it's Rogers!)
4. What are the settings required to do item 3 above.

The reason she doesn't want to pay extra for data is because she doesn't travel at all. She can and allowed to use her office wifi and once she gets home she'll use the home wifi.

If she has the email and BBM add-on she will have access to the hotspot browser too. You won't need to use your SIM card, you can access App World over wifi to download apps and updates.

Over wifi she will be able to use the hotspot browser and some apps, but some (including facebook and the IM apps) require BIS access and thus a Blackberry data plan.
