Telstra hotspot hijack hijinks!

So I'm wandering along surfing the net when all of a sudden my net connection is taken over by a Telstra wireless hotspot and redirected to a log in page.

The only way around it is to switch off wireless or provide them with a Telstra mobile number, account or credit card details.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Can they do this as it seems like an unsolicited grab for money.

It's your phone jumping to the telstra hotspot not the hotspot hijacking your phone.

Other wireless networks pop up and ask whether I'd like to join and for a for a login if it is locked, there is an option to cancel, these don't seem to do that.

They do.

Brisbane cty Central train station has 3 providers depending where you are.

they all offer. what happened was: you walked out of range of the other one, there was no other one available BUT telstra, so the phone tried to dave what you were doing by grabbing it.

You are on the iPhone?

If so, when next connected, head to your wifi settings, select the blue arrow next to the hotspot to get details on the connection and select "forget this Network"

My guess is that at some stage you had connected to a telstra hotspot, even if it was just to see and now the phone remembers it cause that is what it does.
