Default wifi automatic connection

I'll be driving by a Starbucks and will notice my BB automatically connected to their wifi. Does the wifi automatically connect only to saved profiles or to any wifi witout security enabled?

Only the saved profiles. Otherwise you have to Search for a new wireless network.

You really shouldn't be using your BlackBerry behind the wheel of the car.

I always place mine in front of the wheel too. Makes it more like a headsup display...
