Wireless Access Points and 3G - someone explain

Okay so I have a laptop with a built in wireless connection.

Now here's the question.

Are there lots of Free Wireless Access Points in and around towns? How do I go about hooking up to them so I can access the internet?

Are there some places I have to pay for the privilage of using a wireless internet?

Finally, 3G, I take it there are various 3G Hot spots about the place? Can I hook up to these without paying with my wireless network enabled laptop?

Or Do I need to pay to access 3g points if so who from? Do I need any additional hardware?

Yes there are alot of "free" wireless access points,the problem being its illegal to nick some-else's bandwidth.

Those that you pay to use,are usually encrypted(WEP)and you can buy credit either online click here or a voucher at the premises where the WiFi Hotspots setup(I think)

Dunno anything at all about 3G,sorry.
