Pay & Go Text & Web/Free WiFi

I'm sorry if this has been asked before, but I have searched and not found any results for my question.
Back in September I bought an Xperia X10. Sometime in October, I think it was about mid October, I recieved a text message from O2 saying that as I was using one of the accredited smartphone handsets my tariff now included free Wifi with BT Openzone and The Cloud. It contained a link saying instructions on how to set up Wifi were on this page, but it just took me to the O2 Tech guy page on Youtube and that only showed how to connect to Wifi, i.e. at home on your own wireless router. I've tried looking in many places but cannot find out how to log into these hotspots. I have seen various sites saying you have to just enter your phone number and if it's eligible you will be redirected, but when I try and connect it just shows me a login page where I can purchase time on there. Am I doing something wrong?

When you find a valid one you get a screen asking for mobile number.

OK thank you for the reply. The ones near me are obviously not part of it then.
