They said I can connect, because I've got unlimited data (I've also go unlimited hotspot calling, but she said that alone wouldn't allow me to connect, so I think it's just because of the unlimited data), I can log in.

Here's what she said to do:

1. Log onto hotspot. t-mobile .com (sorry, 10 post rule prevents me from having a real link.) with blackberry t-mobile phone number as username and last 4 of the SSN of the primary account holder as the password.

2. Follow the instructions to update your password and security question.

3. At Starbucks (I haven't tried this yet), log onto the attwifi router with phone # as username and chosen password from step #2, and select "Connect to Internet" from the drop-down list.

She also said this allowed me to have unlimited wifi at Starbucks (or any t-mobile hotspot) on my laptop! I'll be testing this out in the next few days.
