iPhone - and Others - Get ATT Hotspot Freebies

The iPhone is getting free access at any ATT hotspot.  Others are getting it because ATT goofed.

Now that AT&T has full control of wireless hotspots like Starbucks and Barnes and Nobles, it looks like they're doling out freebies to their favorite customers: iPhone users. Apparently, if you've got one of Apple's devices, you can hop on the WiFi networks for exactly zero dollars provided you enter your phone number at a login screen. Great for iPhone owners, but a raw deal for everyone else, right? Not so fast, apparently a dumb hack gets you the service on the house too -- just switch your browser's user agent to Mobile Safari, and presto!

Want to use the hack?  Get it while it's hot, cuz this is one hole that'll be plugged fast.
