Windows phone and getting achievements

Hello friends. I was just curious about one thing, it should be a simple answer, but I just want confirmation.

Can you still play games on a windows phone without a phone contract associated with that phone? I understand I wouldn't be able to play them on the fly, but that's okay. I was thinking of picking one up just so I can get a lot of the games and play them while connected to my wifi at home or out and about.

Would that work? I use to have a windows phone when they first came out, but I am an apple junkie, sigh.

Thanks for any help that can be provided.
Video games are like life, difficult, frustrating, but most of all, they're fun and rewarding when you slow down and enjoy them.
Yes you can use only a WiFi
Yes, you can still play and earn achievements without a data or voice plan. As long as its connected to the internet somehow, it can contact Xbox Live and earn achievements.
Yup.
The majority of WP games now, you need an active internet connection. In most cases, the achievements won't pop without one, in many cases you can't play the game at all without it. If you don't have a plan, you'll need an active Wi-Fi.

Thanks everyone, that's pretty much what I figured. I just wanted confirmation before getting one. I am trying to get back in the swing of things. I've been on the achievement hunt sideline for too long. It's time to get after it!
