Why must I justify the equipment I need to do my job?

My company is doing more and more development for phones, so I'm trying to convince the higher-ups to buy the development team some phones to test on, rather than rely on coworker's personal phones.
If I merely plan to hook each phone (Blackberry, iPhone and Android) to our company Wi-Fi for website and app testing, do we still need to find a carrier and pay for a data plan for each one? Or can I just buy the phones and set them up to only work locally in the office?
(And, yes, I am aware there are emulators for each phone, but for final testing, I'd prefer to have the real thing.)
