Free Airport Wifi

I finally got an Internet connection at Beijing Capital Airport. When I turned on my wifi antenna, I saw an AP called AIRPORT-WIFI-FREE. However, after I connected, I found out it's only for China Mobile customers. No problemo... I have a China Mobile SIM card in my phone. Of course, I didn't have it written down anywhere and it took me 10 minutes just to find it. After all this work, I finally received a text message to my China phone with my "free" account info. Even with all that work, it's still the sh*tty fire-walled Chinese connection so I had to connect through a VPN to get to this page. Sigh... 30+ minutes to get connected whereas it only takes 30 seconds in Hong Kong.
