AT&T free wi-fi for iPhones Hack


Recommended Posts

AT&T has been buying up hotspot contracts with companies such as Barnes and Noble, Starbucks, and McDonalds. They have recently allowed iPhone users access to these hotspots for no charge. So the hacker mind quickly asks, how do they ensure it's an iPhone? Perhaps a MAC address lookup? Nope, not even that complicated: they ensure that the browser's agent string matches that of the iPhone's Safari web browser. So just fire up firefox and type about:config in the address bar. Now type in general.useragent.extra.firefox and change the string to:

Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; U; CPU like Mac OS X; en) AppleWebKit/420+ (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.0 Mobile/1A543a Safari/419.3

The website also asks you for a valid iPhone phone number. This should be easy to find too.

You can now use these hotspots for free.

Wouldn't you need to just spoof the browser, MAC, and get a valid IPhone number?

Isn't that what he said? Spoof the "Safari web browser" + "valid iPhone phone number".
