    No, if your using the wi-fi capability on your phone then you won't get charged.

    Yes but usually they redirect you to their homepage where you give your card details etc and then you can begin to use it.

    i have wifi on my phone, but cant connect my phone to my home wireless, i've connected to a few other wireless networks, no problem, but just not my home one, anyone know what i can change so i can connect, because im thinking it could be something to do with the settings on my home network

    Yes, I get that message when I try to connect via wifi....if you make sure that your phone connects through your router as opposed to 3G then you won't be charged....
