Is anyone going to sign up for a wifi account?
What do you mean? Tmobile?
tmobil or att...... or are people going to rely on unlocked or free wifi?
I will rely on free WiFi until the price of a monthly Tmobile account is something I can afford. More along the lines of $10-15/month
Hotspotr.com has become my friend.
Assuming that you're purchasing an iPhone, why would you need to also purchase AT&T WiFi? The data plan you must also purchase with the iPhone should cover that cost, at least I hope so. The data plan covers unlimited email and internet access, which is over both WiFi and AT&T's EDGE network. All you need do is find a free WiFi hotspot to hop on the net. As for AT&T's hotspots, I don't think they're free, but I really can't see why we wouldn't be able to utilize them, especially as we're on an AT&T phone and are paying for an AT&T data plan.
WiFi will be near me most of the time so it is a non-issue. For those times I am on the move I will have EDGE.
the monthly fees for those are outrageous for occasional usage. $30 a month for tmobile + a one year commitment, $20 for at&t. if you're a constant business traveller it makes sense for airport connectivity, but for casual users? yikes!
tmobile looks the better deal for occasionally connecting. prepaid minutes at ¢10 per, with a minimum of 60 on first connection. at&t just does day passes.
if at&t were smart, they'd offer iphone users a deal. $5 a month extra for unlimited access to their wifi hotspots. it'd reduce the strain on the EDGE network (who knows we may get surprised still)
I'm a member of one of the airline clubs, and all the ones I go to have free wifi. Free liquor, too! No more firing up the laptop when I only have five minutes to check something! Woo hoo!
