    I have internet blox on my htc magic. It means unlimited internet in my country. This summer, I am going on holiday in an other country. They probably have a WiFi connection on the camping. Now my question is: does it cost me money if I use that wifi connection?
    Or do I get a warning or so when I am paying for the internet?

    I hope sb replies fast:)

    Should be free if you only use WIFI (You may have to pay your camping for WIFI though)

    some wifi connections cost others don't. If they cost you won't be able to connect to them with paying for the password.

    Just make sure you don't have the option ticked under network settings that allows the phone to use data when roaming. If this is ticked the phone will use 3G data connection as if at home and will quickly run up large costs.

    Basically, there's no way you can unknowingly be charged for Wifi. Either it's free, or you'll have to get some sort of username and password to use it. Eitherway, it's got nothing to do with your mobile phone carrier - it's totally up to whoever owns the wireless router.
