You can disable the use of use of data over the cellular network. You'd still be able to send/receive phone calls, but no data would be exchanged.
You might be able to do it using IT policy. It would make sense for enterprises to have that ability.
Other than that, the apps themselves need to be writen to only use WiFi. There's an option developers can set when establishing a network connection ("interface=wifi"). This option will force a WiFi connection.

Depending on if you are talking about using WiFi to avoid carrier charges or for a direct TCP call there are things to consider. As was noted an app can be coded to have WiFi as a connection option but some apps haven't added it yet.
If you want to use only the WiFi browser you will have to change it to your default browser in Options > General Configuration > Default Browser.

I'd really like to know how to use WiFi for my browser and to sync my emails (and for Skype too, if that's possible) to avoid international data and phone roaming charges. At the moment, my browser and email only use WLAN, so I have to pay data charges. I'm a personal user, and want to minimise my call and data charges when I'm overseas. I recently paid $6/minute in Italy for phone airtime! I'd appreciate your help.
PS - Can I set up a separate browser to use WiFi? Opera Mini?
