No, wifi is completely seperate from the cellular network. It will not cost you anything, but will depend on whether or not there are wireless routers/networks near you and if they are secured (with a password) or not. Wi-Fi is basically a home/office internet connection, just wireless.

For example, all starbucks has 'wi-fi'.

If you don't have a data plan for your phone, get a data block immediately from Bell. They dont like giving data blocks, and they say some functions wont work but they mean stuff that connects to the internet, which will cost you if you wifi isn't connected since it defaults to the cellular providers internet. It cost be about $12 for less than half a MB of usage. Their rate per MB is more than $50, im not kidding.. just checked my bill. If you just got the phone you can get the charges reversed just say you didn't know it would connect to the cellular web and that it cost so much etc etc. They should be lenient if you just got the phone etc...

You probably called their customer support or billing, which know nothing about technical stuff.

Wi-fi is completely independent from the cellular network, so it will not charge you anything. Wi-fi just connects to a wireless router, like the one in your home, if you have one. In other words it connects to the internet via someones home/office internet connection. I have a touch diamond and dont have a data plan, and only use wifi, works great..BUT:

If you do not have a data plan (pay as you go data) with Bell, IMMEDIATELY get a 'data block' on your phone, at first they might say oh it will not let you use some functions, etc, put insist, persist, and use force if neccesary as they dont like giving you a data block..It costs about $50 per mb if you use the pay per use internet! I think that was the 1X, but im not sure, its ridiculously high!

What is wi fi whats does it do


Hi,

Wi-Fi stands for wireless fidelity. The term Wi-Fi, which is alternatively pushed by the Wi-Fi Alliance, a trade group that pioneered commercialization of the technology. Wi-Fi is mostly about connecting to the Internet without physically attaching your computer to anything. Mostly it's about using laptop computers.


A Wi-Fi enabled device such as a personal computer, video game console, mobile phone, MP3 player or personal digital assistant can connect to the Internet when within range of a wireless network connected to the Internet. The coverage of one or more (interconnected) access points — called a hotspot — can comprise an area as small as a few rooms or as large as many square miles. Coverage in the larger area may depend on a group of access points with overlapping coverage. Wi-Fi technology has been used in wireless mesh networks, for example, in London.

In addition to private use in homes and offices, Wi-Fi can provide public access at Wi-Fi hotspots provided either free-of-charge or to subscribers to various commercial services. Organizations and businesses - such as those running airports, hotels and restaurants - often provide free-use hotspots to attract or assist clients. Enthusiasts or authorities who wish to provide services or even to promote business in selected areas sometimes provide free Wi-Fi access.
Routers that incorporate a digital subscriber line modem or a cable modem and a Wi-Fi access point, often set up in homes and other premises, can provide Internet-access and internetworking to all devices connected (wirelessly or by cable) to them. One can also connect Wi-Fi devices in ad-hoc mode for client-to-client connections without a router. Wi-Fi also enables places that would traditionally not have network access to connect, for example bathrooms, kitchens and garden sheds.

Good luck and have a nice day.
rating the solution is highly appreciated.

to be able to acces internet with APN settings you have to be subscriber for a data plan with a network provider... anyways you can acces internet by using wi-fi, from your own home network or any unsecured wi-fi network available.

I cant log onto my ipod touch's wi fi


Actually I had the same problem too, with both my iPod Touch and my wife's. I rebooted both my modem and my router, and that fixed the problem. Routers can get into these strange internal states sometimes, and rebooting them usually fixes the problem.
