Re: android smartphone?

In the FWIW department...

You can find free Wi-Fi at public libraries,Barnes & Nobles, McDonald's, Culvers, and many other fast food spots and most coffee shops, Staples, Home Depot, many supermarkets, airports, universities, most hotels, Kinkos, truck stops, auto dealerships and most chain restaurants. It's really not very hard to find free wifi in the city. On the iPhone you can use an app to help find one. There are a slew of these apps, btw for both iPhone and android, and many offer a dictionary of hotspots along with maps. I like jiwire.

Then there are the open networks. An alarming number of people leave their networks open or set with the default password "password" on their router. I recently did a scan in my area and found 4 completely open networks and two using the default "password".

wifi is getting to be ubiquitous, even in the suburbs and some rural areas. In the not too distant future, free wifi will likely be the norm.
