iPhone and Starbucks hotspots...
During my visit to a closeby Starbucks (in bay area, California) days ago, I found something interesting with the t-mobile hotspots in the coffee shop. As usual, my iPhone (1.0.2) automatically finds and hooks up on the t-mobile AP in the store. Since I did not have an account with t-mobile, I did not bother trying the connection.
But my wife picked up my iPhone, opened the GoogleMaps, and it works! It connects and retrieve the maps with no problem at all! And the Stock and Weather work too! It seems the Gmap has used something other than the http to bypass the account checking process. Is it possible to make a browser to do the same thing?
Anyone knows why?
