How to score free WiFi internet on flights
May 21, 2013 9:10 AM –
I’m going to let you in on a little secret. I’ve been able to score free WiFi internet on some flights. Now it’s not full fledged web browsing and not available to all apps but you can get emails to slip through the cracks using the Gmail app.
I’m personally an email junkie and if I needed access to one thing, it’ll be that. I’ve noticed on American and Virgin WiFi enabled flights you, both powered by GoGo, somehow, you can send and receive notes. Though you may have to force a refresh it has some acceptable lag in updating… Hey you’re getting it free remember? My assumption is because of the port Google uses for SMTP, the provider is not completely being blocked.
So go ye pupils… on your next flight stay productive and score some WiFi.
