How to Get Free WiFi Anywhere on an iPod Touch
When the iPod touch was introduced in 2007, it quickly became one of the best-selling portable music players on the market. What separated the iPod touch from its competitors was its ability to access the Internet through Wi-Fi networks. If you're ready to surf the web and send e-mail with your new iPod touch, it's easy to get connected. Just a few taps, and you'll be on your way.
Tap the "Settings" icon on your iPod touch's home screen.
Tap the arrow on the far right of the "Wi-Fi" bar on the "Settings" screen.
Move the slider on the "Wi-Fi" bar to the "On" position.
Move the slider on the "Ask to Join Networks" bar to the "On" position if you wish to be notified before your iPod touch connects to a new network. Moving the slider to the "Off" position means you must select a Wi-Fi network manually before your iPod touch will connect.
Press the "Home" button to return to your iPod touch's home screen. You will see the Wi-Fi icon appear in the top left corner of your screen with up to four bars illuminated to indicate that Wi-Fi is available and to show its signal strength.
Tips & Warnings
- Not all Wi-Fi is free. Some networks may prompt you to set up an account in order to access the service.
- Wi-Fi access may be limited in rural areas. Hotspots are more common in populated areas.
