How does the BT Fon app work?

Go to solution

I don't have a wifi enabled mobileSmiley Sad, so if anyone out there can answer these Q's, it would be greatSmiley Wink

 

1) Does the app continually search for a hotspot if the app is left on but the user is not logged in?

 

2) Does the app auto time out and log the user out - If so after what time does it do this?

 

3) Does the app still search in the background when the app is switched off?

Re: How does the BT Fon app work?

I cant answer that one, I've never managed to connect to Fon with or without the app, except to say that when at home my phone and the app. show he wireless key and the Fon point [my hub] as being available.

 

Connecting to my hub has been a bit hit and miss, and sometimes could only connect to Fon on my hub and not via the w.k.

Between roughly 19h00 and 19h30 tonight I had no wi fi or Fon signal from my hub.

Seems to be ok for now.

Checked on bt.com for any disruptions to service in my area and found none.

You could take a quick look at the event log as it might show something there......

The app doesn't search for hotspots...ever.

 

2) Does the app auto time out and log the user out -

 

No.

 

If so after what time does it do this?

 

n/a

 

3) Does the app still search in the background when the app is switched off?

Re: How does the BT Fon app work?

On my HTC desire I leave the Wifi turned on. The FON application will indicate when there is a BT Openzone or FON network nearby, it will ask me whether I want to log on.

 

There is an option to enable it to make an automatic connection, but I have that disabled.

 

I find it works best when within range of a BT Business hub, as many of the home hub 2s still have a firmware

problem which stops a connection.

 

I quite often hear the "blink" noise that the phone makes when an access point is available.
