iPhone: No WiFi Without Data Contract?

The tawdry truth about the iPhone, WiFi, and EDGE

Though Apple has released the iPhone’s debut date, one important question is still unanswered; what will it really cost? One anonymous AT&T store manager said users will get their WiFi…when they sign a contract locking them into a data plan and EDGE. Kiss your dreams of WiFi reliance goodbye.

This manager revealed that distribution materials that are now reaching stores clearly state users must purchase data plans to buy iPhones. In fact, he said the iPhone will come with a unique contract that doesn’t exist for any other phone AT&T sells…which could be good or very, very bad.

Well hell, if that’s true, that alone should be worth instituting a boycott, dammit!
