Default Connecting Blackberry to Starbucks Free Wi-Fi

Please Login to Remove!

Is it possible to get the Blackberry connected to the free Wi-Fi (ATT) at Starbucks?

I can see the wi-fi and I can tell the blackberry to "connect" but the blackberry does not get a IP address. I have tried opening a browser (the way you would connect a laptop) but that doesn't trigger the ATT login screen.

What model Curve do you have? Please udate your profile with the model number as there are several different versions.

Some of those are difficult to connect with if you have to go to a login page and enter information or accept Ts&Cs.

I'm using 8530

The Wi-Fi works fine on my secured network at home and at work. I'm just curious if it is possible to connect to Starbucks (ATT)

If you are an AT&T customer, the access point at Starbucks should authenticate you automatically. If you use another wireless carrier, but are an AT&T DSL customer, you will have to authenticate to the AP with your home DSL credentials.

WiFi is free at Starbucks now. I connected my 8530 in the past - and now my 9670.
