Connecting to a Telecom wireless hotspot can be a pain, unless you have some time to go through the login process.

Id love an app (primarily concerned with WM5 here), that would either detect a Telecom hotspot, and pass my xtra login and password automatically, or at least have a button on my today screen, that once i am in range, i can press, and have my details passed for me (rather than loading the web page, and tediously entering the info in.

Does such a thing exist? Can anyone create one?

If you do, and you release it free, i'll send a voucher for a box of beer or something...

I was going to look into something similar, altho my first check would be to see if I could just construct a url to auto login, then add it to favorites.  Depends on how they've done the login system.
