Free Mobile Wifi: FreeWifi_secure on Android


I'm on France and decided to give Free Mobile a try. They offer good pack of service for € 20 / month.

See: http://mobile.free.fr/

One important feature for me is having Internet at home, and the "Accès FreeWiFi illimité", or unlimited access to FreeWifi was what I was expecting to use at home.

The problem is that I bought my cell phone in Brazil and it was not working with FreeWifi. This is related to how the connection works. See the links:

But you may not need to do anything by hand on your phone. Just try FreeWifiConfig app:

It will automatically configure your phone for connecting on FreeWifi_secure.

BUT:
1 - Requires Free Mobile GSM chip
2 - May not work with all phones
