    Well... at&T is giving free wifi to people with iphones, but in safari 3.1 you can go to the develop menu and choose "Moble Safari-iPhone" under the user agent, and then open up safari and you would get the free wifi since the system would think your on an iphone?
    Hmm, would this work?

    Apparently, you have to enter your ATT cell phone number. If you have an iphone that may work on your mac, but otherwise it won't.

    I tried some stuff along this line at Starbucks recently, but to no avail. I understand that it's business but I find it stupid to charge for their wifi.

    Must have AT&T DSL or an iPhone...although some T-Mobile phone numbers are working on the AT&T iPhone Portal?

    Don't mean to sidetrack this thread but when did Starbucks officially roll out the AT&T hotspots?

    I remember them being announced, but didn't hear when they were installed/turned on.:confused:

    Thanks in advance!

    Bummer. Still no wifi at all at my local starbucks. I'll have to check at the one I stop at after work on Fridays.
