T Mobile Dash

Hey everybody sorry to bother,
I am very interested in buying this phone, but I need one thing
cleared up for me. I read that this phone has Wi-FI, something that makes this phone very intriguing. I have a wireless network at my home, and my college also has free wireless internet. What i need cleared is: do I have to pay extra to use the internet on this phone through my wireless network or any other for that matter. Kind of confused, any comment will be greatly appreciated. thankyou
oh, do u guys recommend this phone?

not true

In reply to: answer your question

that is extremely false. the idea behind wifi is that you can access WLAN, wireless local area network. like the guy said, he has a home wireless and school wireless, phones w/ wifi access internet separately from that of the service provider like cingular and tmobile. this is why you see so much in reviews about smartphones why reviewers love seeing wifi in a phone because that means when a wireless network is available, theres no need to access your wireless provider's satellites and pay for internet that way. if the people at tmobile told you otherwise they told you wrong.
