Looking at purchasing a used I-phone / smart-phone what should I know? Anyone have experience using the device via wifi without the data plan?

Currently I am with Telus. I would like to keep my current monthly plan which does not include the data plan but switch to a wifi capable smart phone...
I would like to purchase an older iphone from the people who are upgrading to the new 4G phones.... what should I know when purchasing an older iphone? What price should I expect for different models. What would you suggest for a used different version of a smart phone that I could do the same thing with?
I've heard it is possible to use the Iphone via wifi, but how do I do this while still using my existing plan with telus? (making it so I never accidentally use the data plan) Is an unlocked phone going to give me issues when connecting to the telus network? (extra information, I do not have a sim card if that helps out)
I know little about the smart phones, please help, I am open to suggestions and direction. Note: I do not want to pay for a data plan when wifi is readily available in most places (school, coffee shops, work, home)
