WeFi Helps You Find Wireless Hot Spots

Do You Still Rely on Free WiFi?

Ahh, I remember the good ol' days of searching for hot spots so I could log onto the Internet when I was away from home. Nowadays, I just use my 3G network on my iPhone to get me to where I need to go in cyberspace. But for those of you who don't have the wonderkid of cell phones (or a strong "legal" Internet connection at your house), you still may be left out in the cold.

Thankfully for you, there's WeFi — an online directory of wireless hotspots. This is great and all since it helps you find places to access the Internet, but what if you're on the go and, you know, can't get online? You can text WeFi your location and it will find a list of WiFi-enabled spots in your phone's inbox posthaste. It's genius, and totally free.

Thankfully I can get online whenever I need thanks to my iPhone 3G. @macgirl - that is too funny. I don't think I would need wifi that bad.

Nope, I just use my mobile, or just wait until I get home and check whatever I need to on my home computer.

I have good 3G network with my iPhone, but I do occasionally prefer the speed of wifi for downloading and watching videos. But my iPhone 3G is more than good enough for when I'm on the go. Thank goodness I don't have to carry my laptop around anymore, hoping for a wireless hot spot or signal someplace. That concept seems so obsolete to me... though I know that not everyone wants or can afford a phone data plan and still have to do things "the hard way."

I get free wifi through my landlord at home :) but I can also connect any where via cell phone.

That is awesome. I would totally use this. Unfortunately my phone is not that great with the internet. I knew I should have gotten the Blackberry. :/ So I'm still relying on hotspots for my laptop.

This is still good to offer. I didn't have internet access during my internship (before the iphone) and I had to travel into town to use the free wifi at the local coffee shop.

This is funny I was walking down the alley behind my house and found some guy nestled in between two trash cans with his laptop. Seriously? They have free wifi at our local McDonalds, I would much rather sit there than next to those nasty cans.
