    What? You are way off.
    If you dont have wifi or carrier data theres no internet acess period.
    You can send free texts using various different programs while connected to wifi only obviously.
    And you can use your carriers(AT&T) 3G connection to create a wifi hotspot.
    You cannot create a hotspot out of nothing meaning if you cancell your account you wont have any data or voice on it unless you connect to wifi.

    At first I was stumped but seeing your reply, I now know the OP mixed together at least 2-3 different thought processes. :) Kudos to you sir for making heads/tails from that...

    To use things such as Google Voice, etc. you must have some sort of internet connection. If you don't have a contract or 3G service through a provider like AT&T then you will be dependent on WiFi service to send those texts or receive the IP based calls. That is what the prior posters were saying as well.

    For your iPhone to be a hot spot it needs to be connected to an internet connection, either 3G or Wifi. You can get by without a contract but you will need to be connected to a network of some sort to use those services you want to.

    Are you really surprise by that??

    This thread is Confusing :confused: and Funny :D all at the same time.

    A hotspot out nothing, will give you nothing.

    You could create a hot spot that doesn't really connect you anything (not really sure why someone would do that), maybe just a way to Locally connect devices? (LAN kind of thing).

    He makes his iphone a wifi hotspot so other devices can connect to it and use its 3g connection.

    The iphne needs a 3G connection to do this.

    Does money grow on trees? :rolleyes:
    You must have some kind of internet connection to create a hotspot or be somewhere where there is a wifi connection.
    ipodtouch293's video espouses pirating apps, which is illegal on this forum.
    The user didn't create wifi out of nothing. He already had his AT&T data plan active. He used MyWi to access this data plan. Because he's jailbroken, the AT&T connection was obscured.
    It's obvious that you don't understand technology. I think you should stay away from this course of action until you know what you're doing.

    You make an excellent point, and I completely agree with you except for that part about "do is and if and"— you didn't have to be nasty about it.

    :)
