Computer Reycling is struggling with cellphones in a similar way to
laptops. We could potentially sell them, but we can't service them. 

Bob is right. We don't maintain lists of hotspots. This is a good
idea, though. 

We don't allow people to install their own software on public lab
machines. We have some lockdowns on our public wifi at the Queen
Street Commons, but are willing to open ports upon request. (We may go
to a much more open model in the future.) I do know that some people
do SIP-type stuff there.

The KPL wifi is relatively unlocked. I do not know about the WPL.
