    I was reading the feed on www.Thisismynext.com... On one of the slides imessage should up as free and unlimited on wifi? I'm wondering does anyone know if this will be a wifi only feature? Or will I still be able to use this via 3g?

    The text update said "3G and Wi-fi". Maybe this image was just for iPod Touch?

    Thats an iPod touch in that image.

    If you have an iPhone it will be over WiFi or 3G (WiFi takes priority).

    I'd also imagine that iMessage would still cost carrier data. Carriers are going to want to make money somehow if they aren't charging you for text messages. :)
