BT/EE wifi on underground - can't connect?

Hi

I've recently moved to BT and despite having the BT Wifi app, I can't connect to the EE wifi on London Underground stations.

It just asks for username and password, and my BT ones don't work.

My girlfriend who is also with BT can connect just fine. Her phone connects automatically. We both have iPhones.

Any ideas, please? It's incredibly frustrating.

Thanks

What credentials are you using? Should be the one's you use to log into MyBT.

@Jarndyce  See here on how to connect https://ee.co.uk/help/mobile/manage-use/using-phone-features/wifi-on-the-london-underground 

Do you have a BT/EE SIM in your iPhone? If yes it should connect automatically.

Scratch what I said, looks like it doesn't use the BT/EE app.

No, but as a BT broadband customer, I should still have access (I can connect to EE wifi hotspots)

@Jarndyce  I assume your girlfriend has an EE SIM as she connects automatically? I've connected automatically with a BT SIM in an iPhone.

The link I gave above Says:

How do I connect to WiFi Coverage Boost?
Only devices with compatible EE SIMs can access the London Underground WiFi using EE WiFi hotspots. Follow the set-up instructions for your device below

So I would assume from this it's only available to mobiles with BT/EE SIMs. You could ask for clarification on the EE Community

Thank you, but that’s not correct.
EE and BT are going through a rebranding process, and my understanding is that the BT WiFi spots are now labelled EE. 
I know several people who are BT customers but with non BT or EE sims who can use the underground WiFi.

@Jarndyce  That was my assumption and why I suggested posting on the EE Community for clarification.

Who are the providers of the non BT/EE SIMs that can connect?

Edit: Are they connecting to EE WIFi-Auto or EE WiFi
