    I read somewhere that the "Ask to Join Networks" feature makes your ipod touch automatically join any unprotected wireless network it sees. It's not working for me though. Am I doing something wrong or was what I read just not true? Also, if it doesn't do that is there an app that will automatically join any unprotected wireless network it sees? I don't want one that just scans because I can just hit refresh over and over for that functionality.

    Thanks a lot for the help!

    It asks you if you would like to join a network, then lists off available networks around you for you to choose to join. It will only auto join an unprotected network if you already have it in your Network list.

    Is it possible to set a sound notification when it sees a new network then so I know to take it out of my pocket and join it?

    None that I know of. If there is no network around you in your list, it won't ask to connect until you open something that requires an internet connection. Like Safari or Mail.
