Free Wi-Fi for IPhone Is Still A Pipe Dream For US iPhone Users.

If you were looking for free Wi-Fi for your not yet available iPhone 3g based on the webpage on AT&T site that proclaimed;
"AT&T knows Wi-Fi is hot, and free Wi-Fi even hotter, which is why we are proud to offer iPhone customers free access to the nation's largest Wi-Fi hotspot network with more than 17,000 hotspots, including Starbucks. Now users can relax and access music, e-mail and web browsing services with their favorite blend in hand from the comfort of their favorite location." which since have disappered,
You may have to wait even longer than the new iPhones to arrive at the AT&T counters and shelves.

When inquired about the webpage;  AT&T spokesperson Seth Bloom told Ars Technica that the webpage was yet another error. "We have not made any announcement regarding free Wi-Fi and iPhone," he said. Though the page is still up at this time, Bloom told that "the webpage was posted in error and is being removed." AT&T was not yet ready to roll out free Wi-Fi for iPhone users.

"We have not made any announcement regarding free Wi-Fi and iPhone, Wi-Fi is a real differentiator for AT&T and it is our intention to make it available to as many customers as possible."
