What's my iPhone worth?

    Is there any documentation that says the iPad wifi only version will not work for free at the At&t hotspot locations, ie. Starbucks?
    Even if I have the 3G iPad, but do not have the service activated, how will the hotspot know it is an iPad. I know I can walk into a Sbux with my iPhone, and it automatically connects to the wifi.
    Anyone?

    I do not drink coffee, so I don't know how the wi-fi works at Starbucks. However, to my knowledge, you must have AT&T service to get access to their wi-fi hot spots. The reason your iPhone picks up the wi-fi right away when you go into Starbucks is because you have a phone/data service plan already in place for your iPhone with AT&T. The use of AT&T wi-fi hot spots is included in your plan. In order to use the hot spots with your iPad, you'll need to have the 3G service active (either 250MB or unlimited). Wi-fi is typically faster than 3G, so that would be the benefit of using the hot spot. Battery drain is also reduced when using wi-fi versus 3G.

    Oh, and here is the documentation/verbiage from their website AT&T Wi-Fi
