    When you go to that place, open Settings, click WiFi, select the Network, and you will be connected.

    usually if they ask you to subscribe, just go to the Cafe cashier and ask them about their wifi and how to connect. i know that if you are with rogers or fido on an iPhone 3G, you can connect to Second Cup's wifi as long as you want for free.

    some of the free wifi networks use a webpage based confirmation service (even if they are free) to confirm the terms of service.

    All you do is select the wifi network you want to join, and try an access a webpage. It will either work, or you will have to agree to the terms of service and then it will work

    btw- starbucks is not free wifi, you subscirbe to it since they partnered with at & t

    It all depends on what location you go to (As in store/restaurant)
