    What's the difference between 3G and wireless internet on the iPhone? I'm getting an iPhone 3G for Christmas and was just wondering what's the difference between the wireless and the 3G features on it? With 3G, can you go on the internet while your out and you don't need a connection. Whereas with wireless, you can only use it at home with a wireless router?

    Precisely ;)

    If you're planning on using 3G, it may be wise to get an unlimited data plan.

    Btw.: You did realize that this is a forum for Acer products? ;)

    With an iPhone, the data plan IS unlimited. Perhaps he's thinking of "tethering" his Acer to it. If he's in the US, for now he can forget about tethering. ATT is supposed to allow it later, but we'll see.
