Are you with Telstra? Because I'm pretty sure they have free wifi hotspots around the place for their customers? Could be something like that?
People don't deserve to be victimised just because they're technologically inept.
Eta: Also good to know that if you ever hop up to order another drink/grab a napkin/chase an escaped toddler from your table that I can walk by and take your food! Are you for real? Aren't you the same person who had a problem with childless people attending mum and bub movie times?

Op it's either one of two situations. You are actually able to pick up a guest/free wifi hotspot from a cafe or your service provider or it's a neighbor with no password. If it's the latter it may not be illegal but definitely poor form and I would consider it stealing, you could be making their bill rise or their connection slow down. Open up his settings, click on wifi and check what connection he's on.

OP I actually think it is illegal to use someone else's wifi. Basically when you sign up to wifi you sign a bunch of terms and conditions which contain restrictions. Accessing wifi without permission will in against those conditions and therefore potentially illegal.
I also think if it's an "unsecured network" there would potentially be problems with malaware. We scoffed at @VicPark earlier but I was thinking more of the neighbour situation than a wireless hotspot.
Yeah I'd be taking your sons phone off him and getting the settings to ignore that network.
its an unsecured wi-fi network and technically illegal to connect to from memory,
We had an open conection across the road when I lived in a flat, I had told dad about it (I never used it) and we tracked down the owner and helped them secure their network
