I haven't used a BB since the 8350i but this should at least get you in the right direction. You want to setup your device to use HotSpot Browser. Look at your Device > Options > Advanced Options > Browser, and set that to Hotspot, and SAVE. This should force it to use WiFi as opposed to your data plan.
