That's AWESOME! Hadn't noticed it until reading this. That makes life easier when you're out and about and just want to switch it on for a short while. +1 for Voda/Apple (though it should have been there in the first place, imo)




Cheers

Fantastic... it was only after the third attempt that it showed up.
Great news!

Did you also put in a garbled username and password.

Mine does not connect with garbage in fields.
