AT&T Finally Offers Free Wi-Fi To The iPhone (For Real This Time!)

Today I received a text message from AT&T. It was an official announcement that I can now begin using AT&T Wi-Fi hot spots for free in locations such as participating Starbucks. Nice of AT&T to get on the ball six months after news of the service first leaked out.

Today I received a text message from AT&T. It was an official announcement that I can now begin using AT&T Wi-Fi hot spots for free in locations such as participating Starbucks. Nice of AT&T to get on the ball six months after news of the service first leaked out.The SMS message I received reads:

AT&T Free Msg: Your Apple iPhone now has free AT&T Wi-Fi access at thousands of hotspots nationwide, including Starbucks*. For info visit www.att.com/attwifi
You'll have to excuse me, AT&T, if I am a little doubtful as to your intentions. Several times in the last six months, AT&T has offered and then yanked free Wi-Fi service for the iPhone. I am hoping that this time around the service will last more than a few hours before the plug is pulled yet again.

Too bad for me that the Wi-Fi on my iPhone doesn't work.
