Yeah its free because it connects to your wireless router - if you dont have a wireless router, then you wont be able to connect to the internet.

if you said that, you obviously don't know what logic/words/understanding are.

Apple could, for instance, charge a monthly charge to use the Touch. For instance, they could disable your Touch's ability to use safari/youtube/etc if you didn't pay a monthly service charge through iTunes.

Of course, this is about 1% a realistic scenerio, but you could have answered the question without sounding like an ass.

You won't believe how many people ask my if using You-Tube and stuff is free... I swear the people at my school are all illiterate computer idiots.
No... there is no monthly charge besides what you have to pay for your high speed internet.

Now I have a question. Is there such a device that is like a cell phone in that it connects to a cell phone network, but instead of actually being a cell phone, it is just a Wi-Fi transmitter. It would be cool to have this little device that you can turn on and push a button, it will connect to your cell network and output a very weak range of Wi-Fi, prolly like 3 feet, and it will be slow cuz... the US has yet to catch on to High Speed wireless cell phone networks. And then you can just turn your touch's Wi-Fi on and connect.

Well yes, a cell phone but not... I don't want a device that has cell phone capabilities, IE calling and stuff. I just want a device that transmits a wi-fi signal like the tethering that is going on. So I don't want to have to pay for a cell phone plan, just a data plan, if you will.
