I called AT&T tech about this yesterday, they told me I just enter
my ADSL login info, which is my email addy [User Name] and my
7 digit phone number my ADSL is on[Password]

I forgot to test this while I was in town yesterday. I will
today when the sun comes up in 5 or so hours if I am awake.:)

So wait, you can use ATT wifi hotspots. The username is your email and the password is your phone number? or an actual password.
When I got my adsl with bellsouth the password default was my
home phone number[never changed it].
How the AT&T rep explained it to me basically was....
What you use to log into this site >>AT&T SITE<< is what you will use
for the wifi hotspots if you are a HighSpeed Customer or something along
those lines.

I got on automatically at my local Barnes & Noble. I'm sort of confused about this AT&T wifi hotspot thing because the pamphlet I picked up seemed to indicate it was a service you had to pay for.

It is a service you have to pay for. Only if you use ATT for your home high speed internet do you get a user name for email and a password to use to log into a Mcdonald's hot spot. Just becasue you have an ATT account with the iPhone does not give you free hotspot access.
