The Cloud / Openzone Access

My Simplicity tariff allows me unlimited Wifi use through The Could and BT Openzone but whenever I visit somewhere that has either of those two available, I can't use it and it asks me for usernames and passwords to get online that I know nothing of and haven't been informed of or asked to set up.
Can anyone help me get this sorted so I can use Wifi when out and about?

Re: The Cloud / Openzone Access

The O2 hotspots have a blue O2 landing page where you only have to enter your phone number, so it sounds as if you are trying to connect to others, check for the O2 ones here:

Re: The Cloud / Openzone Access

When I try searching on that page it says "This web site needs a different Google Maps API key. A new key can be generated at http://code.google.com/apis/maps/signup.html"
I know which ones are available locally anyway, there are two close to me, one is The Cloud, one is BT Openzone, but whichever one I try to connect to it beings up a page asking for log in details. How do I find out what they are? Anyway, the O2 Web and Wifi bolt-on allows me to connect to any of the hotspots, regardles of what type they are, so that shouldn't matter surely.

You've made some assumptions there which aren't true.
For example, BT run two types of Openzzone hotspot. Some are restricted to BT customers only, which is why you need to check the WiFi hotspot locator.

Like I said, I already have tried to check but got the error message I posted previously.
I have bene able to check that map before though and it popped up the two that I already knew of. So if those two are unusable by O2 customers, why are they telling them they are available on their map?

Re: The Cloud / Openzone Access

The problem with the error message "This web site needs a different Google Maps API key" looks (to me) to be an O2 issue. The web link http://code.google.com/apis/maps/signup.html implies they need to do something to get their web page (re-)authorised to use Google Maps - not sure who to send this to at O2?

Google Maps error seems to have gone away.

Not for me it hasn't. Still can't click on any area of the map without it bringing up that error message.
