Can any of the people from Vodafone advise how you get the promised access to BT Openzone??????
yeah... i know how to log in lol,
I wasnt asking that, i was asking,
if i select auto connect in the vodafone app does it actually "log you in" automatically or just automatically connect to the wifi hotspot?.
Because if it just connects to the wifi without logging in then its pointless because i wont actually recieve any data signal even though im connected to the wifi and then my 3G will be overided by the wif connection and i wont recieve any notifications or be able to use internet requrired apps unless i manually log in via the browser.
First time poster but I'm having the same experience as C_S_R. The app does find and connect me to Openzone hotspots, but it does not log me in. Any data processes I have will hang until I open a browser and go through the manual log-in process. Is there any way to have the app automatically input my credentials and get me on the network?
When trying to connect to does the WiFi connection just show as BT Openzone or Auto-BTWiFi?
If you're connected via BT Openzone you will have manually login, if you're connected via Auto-BTWiFi you should be connected automatically each time a valid Bt Openzone hotspot is found.
Thanks for the response. I have been connected to BT Openzone...I likely linked to it manually at some point. I've just delinked (i.e., forgotten) it. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be an Auto-BTWiFi network in sight of where I am right now so I can't test whether or not the application connects me automatically. Do the Auto networks always exist alongside the regular Openzone ones?
I do have a BT Openzone network in sight but presumably I want to stay off that unless I want to manually key my credentials again...is that right?
Thank you for your posts and the additional information.:smileyhappy:
Have you performed any updates recently or downloaded any apps around the time this stopped worklng?
Unfortunately it does not appear to be a setting on your device or account which will be a quick fix, however we have seen this before, please can you ensure that the 'auto-login and 'auto-join' function of your device should be set to 'ON' for public Wi-Fi networks.
As long as the connection is a BT Openzone connection then this would allow the device to connect automatically.
WISPr is Wireless Internet Service Provider Protocol, which specifically handles the general switching between WiFi and mobile networks. As such, it's not something specific to the BT Openzone access.
Can you walk me through exactly where you're checking for the options for Auto-BTWiFi that Simon mentions and the "auto" functions DaveCD referred to? I don't have access to the handset over the weekend, but if you can give us this guide, we can follow this and see exactly where you might need to follow a different route.
Also, can I just ask if you've tried logging in at just one BT Openzone hotspot or multiple ones, and if you have any issues with any other Wi-Fi connections logging on automatically?
So this has gone quiet. I will follow the advice of others and simply delete the Vodafone app until someone can explain how this shoud work and why it is not working on mine.
I'll keep an eye on here for any further updates...maybe it's just my phone where the auto-login isn't working.
