    My name is Karl and I live in San Francisco, CA. I bought my first smart
    phone two weeks ago and I have one question at the moment. I don't understand what WiFi is. I mean, I can still get the internet w/o using WiFi
    and no, my phone is not plugged into an ac/dc outlet. I understand that
    WiFi is radio waves. But if I can still get the internet without it, why does
    this option exist?

    WiFi is using internet from a different source, like from you house, through your router, or a free WiFi from a cafe etc..
