You will need to check with your carrier to see if WiFi is allowed without a BB dataplan. Some carriers, particularly in the US require it even to use WiFi. I am not familiar with Koodo as a carrier so you will probably need to check.
It isn't configured out of the box for WiFi. You will need to read your user guide and our FAQ to help you get it set. One problem you might encounter since you do not seem to have a BB data plan, you might not be able to get the proper service books pushed to the device. And keep in mind there are many apps that require a B data plan to work, even on WiFi: BBM, email, Facebook, the BB versions of Twitter, etc.
It looks like he does have a BB data plan, he just wants to know if his BB can be setup to use WIFI when available. So would I, it seems to be faster? But I really want to know how having both turned on affects the battery. For example, using Android you will find if WIFI is enabled it will put carrier data to sleep, be faster, and save quite a bit of battery.
