Several readers are reporting that they've gotten SMS messages from AT&T reminding them of the long-awaited "free wireless at Starbucks" plan
. First announced in February with a target launch of 'spring 2008,'
the service has been quietly running on and off since April,
including two hours of daily access at any Starbucks store or AT&T hotspot. T-Mobile users who have existing hotspot accounts are supposed to have ongoing access to the network in Starbucks stores.
Although the service has been available on a spotty basis,
an official "yes it's working" announcement
has been long in coming
. Have you gotten a reminder from AT&T? Is WiFi working at your local Starbucks? Let us know in the comments.
Thanks to everyone who sent this in
