Anyone had any problems connecting to WIFI at any Starbucks coffee shops?
No. I have an ATT Uverse account so my home log in works at all ATT hot spots
Since I have an iPhone that works with AT&T hotspots, will my ipad work with that same account?
Yes, wifi is wifi regardless of the device.
Not being funny...but have you opened an account at Starbucks?
Here's the deal, their wifi is free as long as you register online with their rewards program.it's free...you just need to do so. The fastest way is by using the account number on the back of any star bucks gift card you may have.
The site will walk you through.
I been told that it will not work off an iPhone account. The iPhone account is just for the iPhone.
The ATT Wifi Hotspots that work with your iPhones account do NOT roll over to the WiFi iPads.
I Install ATT WiFi hotspots and have also spoke on the phone regarding this very issue with their IT Staff. The only way hotspots from ATT will work with the iPad is either using an existing account or purchasing time or as others have said using the rewards program through StarBucks. For McDonalds they have it open for any Wifi Device.
Some Campuses also have ATT WiFi and it's the same as Starbucks, you need ATT prior access or purchase time on the spot.
Coupons are another means and sometimes just by calling their support line on the welcome page and a good enough story might get you one for the day. Or places will hand them out for guests during special promotions.
The iPad and the iPhone are 2 separate accounts. At present AT&T isn't offering a family plan that can include your iPad device.
Just get a $5 Starbucks card and register it. I know everyone likes "free" things, but $5 a month isn't that much to use WiFi at any Starbucks.
I have logged into a few Starbucks wifi networks without using my ATT login credentials. it is my belief that the Starbucks/ATT network is often times confusing the iPad for the iPhone and giving it temporary wifi access.
