    I think i remember hearing how they were going to make things easier for college students with the 3.0 update, but i had forgot what until the other day. I go to Worcester State College and to my surprise the other day while on campus with wifi on, rather than having to go onto safari to gain access to the wifi a screen popped up. A screenshot is added to show how the screen shows up, although it wasnt loaded when i took it. All it simply does is ask you for user id and password, and problem solved. I'm not sure how long it stayed authenticated for but i was happy to see the ease of use. I was going to look through the 3.0 features thread but its way too long and there's way too many overlapping things. In case you're wondering, we use blue socket here in order to log into the internet.

    Yup, you only need to authenticate one time and your login and password are saved thereby bypassing any future login procedures. Only works with certain websites. Excluded are my banking websites.....:eek:

    Nice to see someone from my area.

    Actually my college HCC just let's you connect for free and no login.

    But when I went to Marthas Vineyard last weekend I used that feature on the steamship to get wifi. Accept there was no login. I just had to accept terms and conditions. Preety cool feature though.

    Yeah it's nice. Although when the phone sleeps for a little while it tends to have me log in again. Still a very nice feature. It makes everything so much easier.

    Exactly the same thing happens to me, every time the phone goes to sleep, the wifi is cut off...and the username/password details aren't saved so I can't auto-fill them.

    Yup, had the same thing. BUT it didn't work the first few times. I don't particularly like it.

    It's neat, but in the few instances I've used it, it takes forever to bring the login page

    Our municipal wifi in Grand Haven requires you to log in every time. This screen pops up and loads the AzulStar login website, but its still a pain having to log in every time you access wifi around the city.
