…AT&T can be hacked for free WiFi?

iPhone AT&T Hack

AT&T is (finally) offering free WiFi to its iPhone and Blackberry customers, and with a few easy/clever modifications to your laptop’s browser, you can enjoy that free web access on the big screen as well.

You’ll still need an AT&T account to use the hack, since you have to log in with that account to activate the service, but that’s a small price to pay for the extra access.

…Microsoft and T-Mobile are giving away free HotSpot access?

T-Mobile HotSpot

With the launch of Vista, T-Mobile and the ‘Soft have partnered up to give away three months of free HotSpot service to anyone who upgrades. The free service relies on a pretty weak verification scheme to check for the upgrade though, so with a little easy hacking, you too can enjoy free wireless, courtesy of T-Mobile. Here’s what you need to do:

  • Download Firefox (You should be using this anyways)
  • Download the Firefox entension User Agent Switcher
  • Restart Firefox and go to: Tools > User Agent Switcher > Options > Options…
  • Click “User Agents” and then “Add”
  • Fill out the window with following info:
      Description: Internet Explorer 7 (Windows Vista)
      User Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.0)
      App Name: Microsoft Internet Explorer
      App Version: 4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.0)
      Platform: Win32
  • Save, go to Tools > User Agent Switcher > Then click the newly added one.
  • Browse over to http://hotspot.t-mobile.com/vista/ and you should be redirected to a trial sign-up page.

Note: This isn’t guaranteed to work (You may need to be using a Mac), but if it does, hooray for you!
