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.

i've got a mate who made a Visual Basic script that logs into xtra's broadband usage meter and displays in in the task bar. Could be easily modified, but because the use shtml you would have to log in again after it timed out.
