AT&T to Offer Free WiFi Service to iPhone Users… APRIL FOOLS! Ha Ha, Suckers!
jkOnTheRun: "Episode VI: Return of the WiFi". AT&T; adds hotspot access for iPhones (or not?) So I was pleased to see over at Kevin Tofel’s blog this morning that AT&T; was going to start offering free wifi hotspot access to iPhone owners.
I’ve been bitching a bit lately because I thought the $15 per month rate hike by AT&T; on the new iPhones was a bit extreme, so I was pleased that maybe at least they were giving us back a little something in the form of free hotspot wifi access.
As many sites have published, this message was posted publicly on AT&T;’s website earlier this morning:
“”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 hot-spot network with more than 17,000 hot spots, 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.””
Turns out it was a big trick on iPhone users. PSYCHE!
Allow me to rewrite the message from AT&T;:

PSYCHE! Haha, suckaaaaa! April Fools!!!!!!!!!!! You idiots! Don’t you know better than to believe what we post on our own friggin’ website. You all are a bunch of L-O-S-E-R-S! You’ll pay through the nose for our service AND YOU’LL LIKE IT! We rule! You SUCK!
Now users can NOT relax CAN NOT access music, CAN NOT access e-mail, and Web browsing services with their OVERPRICED blend in hand from the comfort of their favorite location. Of course you can still use our crappy Edge Nework service if you refuse to pay us $15 more per month by upgrading to a new phone and locking yourself into two more years of our supreme trickery!
