    Is there anyway, application or actual setting in the phone, that has the ability to enter in the WEP key for a local WiFi, say, at a coffee shop? I don't know what brand/model the router is, but the Magic picks it up, I just don't have the ability to type in the key and gain access to it.

    You need to get the key from the owner of the encrypted wifi to use that wifi lawfully.

    I know what the key is, the problem of it is there's no way to input the key into the phone to actually gain access to their WiFi signal.
