My neighbor said I can use his WiFi but how do I make the camera show up on my phone? Can I sign up with a separate email then share it to myself?

What camera model is this?  The forum area suggests Pro 3; the model you chose suggests Arlo Go.  Neither use home wifi.

 

The general answer (assuming you have a camera that can be connected to home wifi) is that you on-board the camera to your account on your phone.  You'll need to know his wifi network name and passphrase.

It strikes me that there would be no issue. I haven't tried this but it would be like using multiple base stations in different locations for the older cameras. Take the camera to your neighbor's house and try setting it up on your existing account. You'll obviously need his WiFi password. I just don't see where there would be an issue.
