Default New to BB and confused!

I got my Blackberry this morning and am having a little trouble. My mobile contract wont change over untill Sunday and so any internet usage now I will be charged for.

Is there a way to use the wi-fi and use my wireless home broadband through my phone without having to pay to use it?

I have tried to set up the wireless connection and it says its connected but it doesnt work.

I also only have gprs in lower case on the screen when it should be in upper case but I can get online through the browser but that will be through mobile internet which I have to pay for until my contract swaps over on Sunday.

You can set your options > advanced > browser to hotspot, and use the browser for internet. Not for email and other blackberry service functions.
