    Default JetBlue free Wi-Fi

    JetBlue this week became the first domestic carrier to start delivering Wi-Fi in the air. It's only a beta for now and it's a little buggy and limited so far. But it's a first step to giving people connectivity in the sky.
    The complimentary BetaBlue service allows people to instant message and e-mail using customized versions of Yahoo Mail Mobile and Yahoo Messenger. Travelers with Wi-Fi-enabled BlackBerry handsets can access their corporate and personal e-mail while in flight.

    JetBlue is not the only carrier looking at connecting their passengers. American Airlines, Virgin America and Alaska Airlines all have said they will provide Wi-Fi access soon, though they may charge for the service.
    Early tests suggest, though, that the experience will not be smooth sailing. JetBlue passengers like Cnet blogger Caroline McCarthy said connecting isn't always a snap, and maintaining a connection can be tricky.

    When up and running, it works well, but you can't send attachments through Yahoo Mail, McCarthy found you visit Yahoo's Go mobile service to check on weather, sports scores and news.
