    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.

    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....
