    Like do you often get access to the internet while your out, or is it always a hassle to find a wifi spot? Hows the internet service?

    And theres no chance for a price drop at WWDC?

    I don't usually use the internet on my touch when out and about, but I do get Wi-Fi about 50% of the time (leeching off other people of course)

    I doubt there will be price drops on Monday, probably more like September where we will also see increased capacity and all that good stuff.

    I hardly get wifi anywhere when I'm away from home. others peoples experience with wifi will have absolutely no bearing on what your experience will be. if Internet access away from home is important to you then get the iPhone.

    Lots of access in Europe

    I frequently travel to cities and towns around Europe and I find it very easy to gain WiFi access, both free and pay per minute (also I don't know why or how but if I encounter a network only locked with WEP security, entering a password of 'admin' will let me join).

    Tokyo, Japan
    There's no free public WiFi in Tokyo, so I'll be first in line for the iPhone as soon as it's available here, no matter what the cost. The Touch is awesome, but it is exponentially more useful (for me, anyway) when it has access to the internet. ;)

    It is fun looking for internet connections, but the only successful connections are the ATT which I pay for.

    Even when I find unsecured WiFi, I normally can't connect. I get an error saying that the iPod couldn't connect to the network. If you need to have internet when your out go with an iPhone.
