ars technica is reporting that AT&T will make their hotspots free to iPhone owners.
Reader Brian Zushi tipped us off a little while ago to the fact that AT&T WiFi hotspots offered not only an iPhone portal, but apparently free, unlimited access for the device. This evening, Brian sent us the screenshots you see here. Apparently, no AT&T hotspot account is necessary, as users are simply prompted to enter their 10-digit mobile number to gain access. We assume this means the hotspot checks the phone number against AT&T’s iPhone account records, which leads us to assume that unlockers may be left out in the cold on this one.
My iPhone is saying it’s about time!
