2) Click mail, contacts, calendar
3) Click add account
4) From the list click other
5) Click add mail account
6) Put the name that you would like people to see when they get an email from you in the NAME field

8) Enter the btconnect password in the PASSWORD field
9) Enter anything in the DESCRIPTION field

If you are experiencing an issue connecting to the BT Openzone WIFI through the My Vodafone Application and receive a message to download the configuration file and are then presented with an error message advising you that the SSID is not unique please follow the details below.
When you try to connect to the BT Openzone WIFI Hotspot simply decline the download of the configuration file as this should already be pre installed on your device.
On iOS 4.3.1 and above, the BT Openzone settings for WiFi are already included. When you go into a hotspot area and manually select “Auto-BTWiFi” SSID, you will connect to the secure EAP-SIM authenticated BT Openzone WIFI hotspot.
You will needs to turn “auto-join” on once connected, to enable the device to connect automatically in future.
On iOS 5 and above auto-join is automatic, so you should connect to the “Auto-BTWiFi” SSID when in range without having to do anything. If auto-join does not work for some reason, just select “Auto-BTWiFi” to re-connect.
For pre-iOS 4.3.1 iPhones, you can get the settings to access the same secure BT Openzone hotspot by downloading a configuration file. The link to this file is found in the My Vodafone app in the WiFi Setup area.
