UConnect extends as a Wifi hotspot

A few weeks ago Chrysler announced they will be extending their UConnect service, which was originally just bluetooth connectivity, is now being extended to offering in car WI-FI.    This is pretty cool, but you should understand what's really going on - they are basically offering in-car cellular service, and bridging it to WI-FI via a router.  So you probably wouldn't want to connect with anything that already has a cellular data connction, such as an iPhone.  It would probably work just as well to use your iPhone's data plan rather than using your iPhone to WI-FI to a cellular code, even if it is 3G.
