Welcome to the forums!

No, data is only charged if you use the cellular network.

Wifi is not added to the data allowance. :)

1) WiFi is different to the phone network, the phone network is 3G (or am I reading too much into your word "other"?)

2) If you are using WiFi it will not be charged to your phone data.

No you won't be charged. If they are unsecured Wifi networks, the phone will automatically connect. You will only be charged for 3G and GPRS usage.

Edit: beaten by many :(

Not if they don't know ;)

BTW, I don't condone the practice of stealing Wi-Fi, if you're too cheap to get it, don't be low enough to steal it (people pay for it though).

and not if they are either free (public) or he has the owner's permission.
