Free Wifi (sort of) on American Airlines Flights
Thought this might be of interest to some people.
Yesterday I was flying American Airlines and the plane that I was on had Wifi. When I opened up my web browser on my Xoom, I saw that it was about $10 for the flight. I didn't want to pay that, so I closed my browser, but left my Xoom connect to Wifi. About 2 minutes later, Google Voice goes off saying I had a text message. I opened it up and replied. Come to find out, Google Voice worked fine without paying for the service. I was able to send and receive texts and listen to voicemails. I then wanted to find out what other apps worked. Gmail was the only other app that worked fine. The Google Market would let you search for apps and read descriptions and such, but would not let me install apps.
So the next time you are on American Airlines, you can get text messaging and gmail for free.
