When I get an iPhone, I don't want to buy internet, I just want to use my wifi or hotspots to get on the internet (there everywhere these days). What I'm wondering is....will I be able to get on AOL Instant Messenger or will that be a special program I have to pay for?

I doubt that you'll have to pay for anything that you use at a Wifi hotspot. If you have to use text messages to use AIM, then you will be either charged per message or you'll have to get some sort of data package from Cingular.

I'm not sure if you'll be able to do that. As much as I love Apple, they know how to make their money and probably already anticipated that. You may have to pay no matter what to get the internet package. I kind of had the same prob with my sidekick. I had to get the data package no matter what, which included the internet. I'm pretty sure no matter how you want to get on the net, you will have to get the package.
