AT&TÂ’s off-again, on-again free WiFi for iPhonesIt's on-again!

Update: It's OFF again.

For those that haven't been following the drama (shame on you!) here's the scoop. AT&T last Thursday began trials of free WiFi service for iPhone users – and people picked up on it pretty fast. It was suspicious though because there was no mention of it from either AT&T or Apple.

Then on 04 May AT&T removed the free WiFi access – much to the dismay of iPhone users everywhere.

Well, today the service is back and it's official.

According to MacRumors AT&T's iPhone website (under 'Plans' tab) has been updated to reveal that each iPhone plan now includes access to their "more than 17,000 Wi-Fi hotspots, including Starbucks all for use in the U.S."

So, is it working where you are?

Update: According to Gizmodo, it's off again. Damn you AT&T! I call for an immediate boycott! That's it. I'm getting a VZW handset that actually has coverage in my area. Enough is enough.

  • Off again?

    If you look at the Plan Details today, AT&T has apparently removed the WiFi offer yet again. I'll have to stop by the local Starbucks to see if it indeed does work, but with them pulling it from the site it doesn't look good again for iPhone owners.

    I have an iPhone and have been paying $20 a month for the past 11 months for wi-fi service. So are you telling me that I no longer have to pay this monthly fee? that my bill will actually go down?
