    You probably don't have the password to allow you into the Wifi system for the location you are in.

    No the only one that requires a password is the house one which works fine. The other 2 (at my school and job) are free for use by the public and dont require passwords

    Just a guess, but are you just trying to use email or some other non-browser app? Many times with free networks you have to agree to their terms and conditions before it will actually let any traffic through.

    Open up a web browser and try to go somewhere (say google.com) and it will probably bring up a web page where you have to "accept" something. After that email and other apps should work fine too.

    I wouldn't be surprised if you have to do this every time you join the network.

    No i dont think its that because i got it to connect to my school's before(i had used the some option in wifi to confige it) but ever since it wont work. i think this phone is just being weird
