wifi is pretty important to anyone who doesn't want to get ripped off with a data plan

And have wifi access point available around. At home or at work, people would just use the computer, or are there that many people who use their phone to use the internet at home?
Where I leave I've found that is useful but only in some limited occasions like when I'm in a train station or if you pay for a wifi network in town but then you are screwed by another data plan.

i use my phone for internet all the time, there are plenty of times i want to look something up, but i don't want to go to my desk. At work, I do pair programming, and having access to email and the internet while at another desk is great. I use reeder for rss feeds, which will cache downloads, so i also use it to read stuff while offline on my commute. I live in a big city, so it typically isn't hard to find hotspots, but even if i can't, my carrier offers 2.99 "day" passes for data (although, I've only used that once)
