ATT Free WiFi at Starbucks is Live
Back in February, we found out that ATT was teaming up with Starbucks to offer free WiFi and oust T-Mo from the current WiFi providing deals.
Now, those portals are apparently live. David Chartier got some screenshots of the ATT iPhone portal in a Texas Starbucks. Users can now use a "membership" to get free access, or sign up for one-day/one-hour/etc for-pay passes as well.
thanks, kevin, for second image
He mentioned the Starbucks manager there thought the plan was to have all 7000 or so US Starbucks locations moved over to ATT WiFi by summer. Just in time for the Gphone.

The starbucks WIFI isn't FREE.
The card is $19.00 a month for 2 hours a day. This isn't free. It's only free for AT&T Broadband customers (which excludes iPhone users that do not have AT&T Broadband at home).
WIFI should truly be free, however, I understand the dilemma of having customers tie up a table for hours on end and only buy a small tea. To handle this we can use courtesy. How about a sign that says please "Limit WIFI use to 2 hours or less, Thank you"

It will be free before long, just like phone calls before long. World-wide wifi-coming to the world May 2012.

That AT&T login page for iphone is something like 4-5 months old thing.

I wonder when the "order drinks" thing on the iphone is going to be implemented

Its been at my local Starbucks for a while now. Sorry, but this news isn't exactly hot of the presses.Apples taste good.

really what i'm waiting for, and have been for awhile now as what is in the picture i sent pf (i'm kevan by the way) has been there for a week or so, is the xm radio station info integration with the touch/phone we chicago folk, along with you other launch(ish) cities were promised by now. i'm not a huge fan of the music they play, but i think it would be a really neat thing to have available. also, apple needs to buy that guys mockup/ip of the order system and get that thing rolling.

Wait, so it's not free for AT&T iPhone customers? That...really...sucks.

I have a starbucks in Krogers (which is a grocery store for those who don't know) and I was mad because they don't have WIFI. Looks like I get the **** end of the deal
