Free WiFi for iPhone owners


It appears that iPhone users are given free WiFi access at 71,000 AT&T WiFi hotspots including Barnes & Noble and Starbucks stores.

Instead of the usual login/payment screens iPhone users are seeing a new entry screen asking for their iPhone phone number and once the number is entered they get free access.

macrumors notes that this appears to be based on the “user-agent” setting of the web browser so this is easily faked on a laptop to get free access (as long as you have a valid iPhone phone number to enter).
