Connecting Blackberry Playbook to BTFon

I am having problems connecting my playbook to BTFon or rather logging in to BT Fon. I can set the playbook to connect to the network with no problems, but then I cannot login. The browser simply comes up with an error message about network problems. (I know BT Fon is working because I am logged into it now on my home network.) The Help pages here have loads of links about connecting Blackberries with the 'Blackberry App' but that does not seem to be available in the Blackberry App store and all the links for the Blackberry App on the BT website go to the IPhone App...

Re: Connecting Blackberry Playbook to BTFon

Hi Mcward63,

 

Thanks for the post and welcome to the forum.  The BT Fon app should be available via the Blackberry App store,

 

Connect Blackberry

  • Open Blackberry App World and search for 'BT Fon'
  • Scroll down, find and select BT Fon
  • Choose download and follow the on-screen instructions
  • Open app, click set up now; you'll need your BTinternet email & password
  • Go to wi-fi settings to select BT Fon or BT Openzone for the first time
  • When you're in a hotspot, open up the app and you will be connected

Connect Blackberry

 

Let me know if you find this or not.

 

Cheers

Sean

BT Fon does not appear to be on the Blackberry App store accessed from the Blackberry Playbook. Are you sure SeanD that the app works on the playbook? If not when will the app become available for the playbook

 

Thanks

The app is not yet available for the Blackberry Playbook or any Blackberry Smart phones with Op 7 installed.

But it would be good if BT could give some indication of if and when the BT Fon app will be available for the Playbook. I emailed them about 2 weeks ago and just didnt get a reply.

Have spoken to BT Openzone helpdesk this afternoon and am told they are working on a Bt Fon App for the Playbook which should be available in the summer. A bit of a vague date but I was assured that BT are working on it.

Very glad to hear that. I'm also looking to use a playbook on BT Fon.
