AT&T Announces Free Wi-Fi For iPhone Owners (For Real This Time)

AT&T has finally announced that all iPhone owners will now have access to free Wi-Fi at any AT&T hotspot in the country. This news comes after several false alarms in which AT&T prematurely announced the deal and then quickly offered a retraction. The notification is coming via text-message which AT&T began sending out to iPhone owners today. The message 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”

AT&T’s current hotspot offering includes over 17,000 locations, which include Starbucks coffee shops. From the site:
