BT launches 'free' Wi-Fi mobile appBT Fon app allows Total Broadband customers with an iPhone or Android phone to connect to the nearest Wi-Fi hotspot for free
---
BT has launched a mobile app for broadband customers that automatically connects their iPhone and Android mobiles to free, unlimited Wi-Fi.

The BT FON app, which is only available to BT Total Broadband customers, notifies users of the nearest Wi-Fi hot spots. Users then enter their BT internet email username and password, and can choose to be automatically logged in whenever they are in a BT Wi-Fi area.

Because access is unlimited and free for BT Total Broadband customers, this prevents them racking up extra costs on their mobile phone bill. BT FON and BT Openzone currently has 1.6m Wi-Fi hot spots worldwide.
---
iPhone users can download the application from the app store (search for BT Fon) or by typing http://****/iPhoneBTFon into the iPhone's browser. Android users can download the application from the Android Market (search for BT Fon) or by typing http://****/AndroidBTFon into their browser. BBC's Children in Need appeal will receive 50p for each of the first 20,000 times the application is downloaded.

Is there anything on the BT web site? If not, the helpline is 08001114567. You're likely to be asked for your BT account number before they reset it for you.

cis_groupie yes that is the case. I recently signed up to the scheme and the operator told me that new BT broadband customers are automaticly signed up as of 2008 or thereabouts.Prior to this, it is was voluntary.

You need OS4 or above for this to work I'm not ready to risk my 3G with that yet.

Still, a great app and an excellent service from BT.
