Use the iPhone to find free wireless while traveling

I don't think the best comparison is with stealing. I think it's more like walking into an unlocked house and making use of the amenities without actually taking something -- perhaps watching the TV a bit, or just keeping out of the rain.

In some countries that would be a civil offence, not a criminal one, and that's how I think logging on to an open network without permission should be treated. But the legal situation in some countries appears to be that it is a form of hacking, a criminal offence. So be careful!
