    Default Free WIFI access in UK

    Hi all,
    I heard somewhere that all purchases of UK 02 mobile phones (the non-import ones on o2 contract) get to use free wifi hotspots run by "The Cloud". Does anyone know how it connects and how it knows that you are an 02 cusomer? I was just wondering if it were able to use the hotspots with a non 02, imported Iphone.
    Thanks all!

    I'm pretty sure it's an open access point, but it will ask you for a username and password (which you would get from o2) in order to actually use it.

    Just found that when you connect to one of the cloud's networks you type in your o2 phone number attached to your iphone and it gives you access. It then stores that data and whenever your in the zone of another one it automatically connects you.. Pretty cool.. So, any UK person who bought an Iphone legit wants to post their number on here I wont hold it against you!lol

    im guessing that the first time it connects after giving telephone number, it will store MAC number so only one the specific phone can connect - a guess
