    I'm travelling to SF tomorrow and plan to carry my WiFi iPad 2 around with me.

    My question is, is WiFi ubiquitous enough in SF that I should have good coverage or should I JB my iPhone before I leave so I can tether?

    You'll get wifi at Starbucks or other coffee shops, but it's not widespread.

    I live in the Bay Area but I don't travel much to San Francisco, so I can't answer your question of WiFi coverage.

    But regarding tethering and having to Jailbreak your iPhone, you know that AT&T pro-rates the tethering plan, so if you don't want to pay for a whole months worth ($20), you can just pay $.66 a day and still be allowed to use up-to 4GB of data.

    I gave up my unlimited plan because I never even came close to using 2GB, and even with tethering and my most heaviest usages, I still stayed under 1 GB (I was on a week long trip and shared my connection with my iPad and 2 other iPhones).

    There's a starbucks on every block downtown.
    And you should be able to find a open network somewhere if you NEED it.

    Thanks for the feedback....not giving up unlimited. As surely as it's low today, it will spike tomorrow.
