I have some doubt about Wi-Fi. What I understand from Wi-Fi is that:- " wireless internet connection " I am using Sony Ericssion W580i handset having airtel sim. and have AIRTEL LIVE internet setting. & surf the net on my mobile no extra settings. Does this means my mobile is Wi-Fi enabled device?
WiFi refers to a specific set of technologies covered by the IEEE 802.11 specifications and typically carried on the 2.4Ghz and 5.8Ghz ranges. It is not any wireless connection to the internet, and in some cases does not provide access to the Internet at all, but rather a local private network.
When you're using your airtel connection, you are not using Wifi. You are using a cellular data connection (in this case, an EDGE network).

Contradictory statements, isn't it ? Airtel Live is just a basic WAP portal. You are billed for data transfer.
And no, your phone doesn't have WiFi
