    You have to pay for Wifi hotspots. That is probally why you are getting that error. If you have Wifi at your house just connect to it and you internet on your phone should work. I hope this helped

    although they are unlocked most hot spots you have to log into the proper website before your able to access them. Try logging in at home on your own wifi network and see if you are able to do it. If you do not have one, try a friends house. Ill bet that it works.

    Even though a network may not be locked, there is a good chance that you are not able to actually use it.

    I dont think this is what is wrong but check out http://www.modmyi.com/forums/showthread.php?t=17094
    it shows you how to downgrade to 1.0.2 to virginizer your phone which would basically fix any wifi issues. But i dont think this is your issue, i think your just not able to access the hotspots because you dont have an account.

    try and reset your network settings...ive had a similar problem and this solved it...and when he says account...sometimes you will have to ask for a card or a log in number for the wifi spot...youll have to go the the website of the wifi spot and log in to use the wifi(you can pick up the wifi no problem, but you cant connect yet)...jus ask an employee of the wifi spot if its needed...if he says no then its probably your network settings i dont see why else it wouldnt work...
