Default wi-fi question

Please Login to Remove!

if i buy a unlocked pearl,is there any way it will be able to connect to the internet via wi-fi,without paying for the service?

im only wanting to do this as i like the phone but they wont sell to pre paid customers

i guess what im asking is,if i get a unlocked pearl,will the wi-fi work without paying there service,and or is there any way around this?
