WiFi in U.S. with unlocked UIQ 3 phone

Can someone explain how WiFi works from a cell phone? I recently purchased an unlocked Sony Ericsson P1i for use on T-Mobile in the U.S. I currently do not pay for internet access through T-Mobile. I am wondering if my phone will connect to public (free) WiFi networks available in my metro area without signing a new contract?

I can't see why being on a contract or not, or paying for internet access or not, would have any effect on your ability to use WiFi networks.

WiFi networks have got nothing to do with the mobile operators so all you'd need to do is the usual WiFi network setup:

- scan for an access point
- select the correct encryption type (WEP, WPA), if any
- enter the key or password

Good luck
