I hardly ever write reviews but the one star bashing this app appears to be getting has compelled me to write one and stick up for BT. It has recently updated and it says that you may need to go into the settings of your phone and tweak it here and there so that the phone will work the app correctly. For someone that is data precious and travel a lot in my job, this app has to be best I have on my phone. I am constantly picking up Wifi.
Don't be put of getting this app because of the bad reviews - download it, check it out and I would give it a couple of weeks to see what this bad boy can do! Well done BT!
Awful and useless
So I've been a bt broadband customer for a few years now and I have a bit account on the Internet with no problems at all but whenever I try to log on to by to connect to hotspots on my wifi settings logging in says that it's incorrect even though it works on the Internet so I thought this app would make a difference. So I got it and logged in but nearest hotspot is over seven miles away but still on my settings it says. "BT WiFi" and "BT WiFi with FON" and says that they are hotspots which is good because it automatically logs me in to them. However, it does not actually let me connect to this by wifi on settings so I'm not sure if I have to be in a listed hotspot on the by wifi app or what!
You need to use your log-in details to log into the app and then go into the settings on the app and install the BT profile on your phone. Once installed, your phone will automatically connect to BT wireless hotspots when in range. It's not necessary to open the app (in fact I've not opened the app for a few weeks until this morning).
It can be a bit annoying sometimes if your phone disconnects from 4G in the middle of something and connects to wifi, but ultimately it helps keep data usage low.
