Can I use wireless internet without having a contract?

Does anyone know if I have to have a contract with AT&T to use wireless internet on my laptop? I am from Germany and I will visit USA in summer for 3 months and need to check my e-mail-account. 
 
Thank you very much for your help!

     From what I could find out through customer care, they only require a contract if they provide the equipment to you at a discounted rate, This would also fall in line with the info found in this LINK.

Sign up for 2 years, then after your 3 months, send them the $175 for early termination. OR if you have a phone that you can tether, add that service to your plan, (around $50 . mo) then cancel the service any time..

Also, IF i'm not mistaken, the 2-year is if they give you the hardware.. IF you buy the wireless card, say from Ebay, you should be able to use month to month.. ? You might check with CS about that..

Tha at&t business site lists a data connect plan that is abailable , without a contract for $79 a month. This can be done with a laptop card or tethered pda or phone.
 
See the LaptopConnect Card link at the bottom of the page. The the DataConnect plan for $60, then note #6
 

"6. Requires two-year agreement. Otherwise, the Monthly Service Charge is $79.99. Plan may also be used with eligible, AT&T-certified customer owned and maintained (COAM) devices."
