  1. I’m not surprised, I have an iTouch because AT&T requires you purchase there Data Plan with an iPhone. So I have an iTouch and to hell with AT&T. I was ready to drop my Verizon account and sign my family up with AT&T until I looked into AT&T service plan.

  2. Too bad. The ideal solution is to keep the iPhone as a better iPod touch than the iPod touch with camera, GPS and cellular data, better speaker, microphone. But AT&T won’t let you keep an iPhone with just the data plan. I have an iPhone 3G 16 and a gen 1 iPod touch 16. I did have my gen 1 iPhone and 3G for a while before selling the gen 1. I regretted the sale because the touch is inferior to a 1G iPhone without a data plan.

  3. “over a period of time, the iPod Touch will become an increasingly important booster of the mobile web.”

    Om: As a user of both the iPod touch and the iPhone, I am not too sure that the touch is a booster of the mobile web. The main problem I faced with the touch is the availability / clunkiness of logging into wifi. (by clunkiness I mean you have to fire up a web browser and do some login – not fast enough for a quick email check ) However I was a big user of the iPod touch in my home and friends homes, work wifi etc etc.In general I used the touch’s browser a lot, for example when I was watching TV.

    The biggest advantage I had once I got the iPhone was true mobile web connection wherever I was …

    What admob (which powers a lot of ads in ipod touch games for example) is a lot of ipod touch usage. It remains to be seen whether this usage is truly “mobile” . I think what they are seeing is a lot of ipod touch web connected usage. I would bet this usage is at home / office etc instead of being truly mobile….

      i use boingo wireless and it works in many places. it is simple to log into. another software to use is devicescape. you are going to find life improves once you get one of these two apps.

      on the mobile web usage if it is truly mobile – you have a point there.

    2. ..I don’t know how you consider it clunky. The iPod Touch logs into wifi the best I have ever seen in a device. You should try to log into wifi with a PSP. Now that is torture..

  4. I just purchased an ipod touch for the purpose of music and web. Since I am now to this high tech stuff..I am trying to find how I can access wifi, and what the steps are.. do I need to purchased a wireless mobile package? Am I on the right track?
    Any help would be great, as I am blind.. right now just using the ipod touch for music.. which is boring.
