BT wifi

 My new smartphone has connected me immediately to BTwi-fi. I didn't have to put in any username or password to show that I have a BT home broadband package( I do). Does the smartphone "know" this?(I am with o2). If not, is it not free? Does my data usage then come off my data allowance, and wi-fi is then just a convenience? Thanks.

Re: BT wifi

It will connect, but you will not be able to browse the Internet without logging in on the BT Wifi home page, with your BT Broadband details.

 

If you use the BT Wifi app, then this login process can be automated.

 

It does not count against your home broadband usage, as long as you are connected to BT wifi.

Re: BT wifi

it doesn't count for your mobile allowance which is for your mobile connection on probably 3g (H) when wifi is not available.  you ned to make sure you are logged into BTWIF with internet access as Keith has said

Re: BT wifi

If you need to keep an eye on your data usage, it's best to keep 3G switched off until you want to connect to the internet without wifi. That will also extend the time between battery charges, as will keeping wifi switched off until you want it.

 

Of course that's only of use to those who can live without a permanent connection to Farcebook and Twatter.
