    I know the whole point of the iPhone/iPod Touch was to allow users easy access to the internet without having to login to networks and routers.

    So, is there anyway to get past a login screen when prompted to a URL in Safari?

    I don't have an iPod Touch, but the thought just came to me and I wondered if/how it worked.

    If you are logging into a website that has authentication on it, then no, there is no way to get past it (well ,there maybe but that is another post and probably not very legal). The ipod touch/iphone is not designed to bypass anything. If you are standing in the street and you get an internet connection, that is because there is an open wifi router near you, you would get the same scenario with any other laptop/computer.

    Any internet connection on an ipod or iphone is a network connection, so if there is security on a network, you have to login (or use a token, whatever).

    If the network is unsecured, and it is not your network, then you should not be on it (though others may disagree)

    In short you answer your question:

    "So, is there anyway to get past a login screen when prompted to a URL in Safari?"

    Yes...enter your user credentials (username/password)...same goes for URLs/websites that require authentication.

    Cheers
