Currently we're using a Motorola VE465, but want to buy a Samsung Discover outright. Sticking with Wifi for data usage.

Yup that should be fine.
Keep in mind though you might want to add the "Data Block" add-on so the phone doesn't accidentally access the Mobile Data network & incur usage fees. That will however also disable Picture Messaging but it'll ensure you don't get charged for accidental Data.
