Free AT&T Wi-Fi Hotspot Access for iPhone Users (again)

I’ve been getting smatterings here and there from fellow iPhone users that they are receiving SMS messages indicating that we have free access to AT&T Wi-Fi Hotspots now just because we have iPhones. I haven’t received my SMS yet, but I looked up how to access AT&T Wi-Fi anyway in preparation. It’s not as simple as I thought it would be:

Activate Wi-Fi from the settings icon on your iPhone
Select “attwifi” from the list of available networks
Enter your 10-digit mobile number and check the box to agree to the Acceptable Use Policy. Tap ‘continue’
You will receive a text message from AT&T with a secure link to the AT&T Wi-Fi hotspot. You will not be charged for the text message.
The SMS link will only be valid for 24 hours at the location it was requested. Another request must be submitted when using another hotspot location.
Open the text message and tap on the link for 24-hour access to the AT&T Wi-Fi hotspot

  1. Looks simple enough.

    Some guy out there is probably working on an iPhone App to simplify the procedure.
