    Default 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.

    Starbucks says:

    • Complimentary Wi-Fi for Starbucks customers When you register your Starbucks Card and use it at least once a month, you'll receive two consecutive hours a day of complimentary Wi-Fi, courtesy of AT&T.
    • Complimentary Wi-Fi for AT&T DSL customers AT&Ts more than 12 million DSL customers already qualify for free Wi-Fi at their neighborhood Starbucks.
    • Competitive pricing for paid Wi-Fi All other customers can receive two consecutive hours of Wi-Fi access for $3.99.
    If you've got more info on the Starbucks rollout side, or a better screenshot of the ATT iPhone portal, let us know!

    i'm confused on how it works... however, if it's free for AT&T customers, sweet!

    I'm not sure, but I think it's free if you use your AT&T login. And if you don't have one, then you have to pay.

    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.

    You get free Wifi for 2 hours if you have a Starbucks Card(Starbucks Cards are free - just make sure that is registered).

    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.
