    I'm going to take a flight from SFO to John Wayne Airport tomorrow. Will I be able to get internet connection? Will the ipod touch connect to the wifi automatically?

    Go to settings, and wifi, and scan for networks. If any are accessible, hop on and enjoy.

    I travel all the time and most airport wifi is not available right now. You have to pay for log-on time. The hotel is different. Most have free wifi available and is very easy to connect to. I will not stay in a hotel that doesn't have this free service. Good luck.

    I see. No wonder I couldn't get wifi when I was at the airport last time. Is it different for iPhone users? They get their internet connection anywhere from the 3G network or something?

    Yep, thats the great advantage of owning an iPhone, the 3g coverage. While not as fast as wifi, at least it's still internet connection and it's decently fast enough to be honest. Some airports do offer free wifi though, but a lot don't.

    Or, if you live in the middle of nowhere like I do, 3G is some 100 times FASTER then any home internet or Wi Fi connection available here :p

    Most airports do have wifi, and a lot of them in the states use a wifi service by the name of boingo.

    I use it a lot when I travel. If I am doing a lot of travel in one day for's great - the boingo daily service will transfer from one airport to the next, which is a huge plus!!!

    You can also do a monthy plan, which if traveling a lot in a certain time frame - is definitely the way to go ;)

    I even got a connection at a small hotel in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico with no problem or expense. Airports, I found, charge an arm and a leg to log on.
