Frustrated with setting up Shaw open wifi?

I’m really frustrated.  I have a device registered.  The first time trying to set this up a profile was loaded onto my iPhone.  I never installed it.  Today it’s gone.  The tech didn’t seem to answer my question and I was told I register the device with my MAC address.   So I deleted the original entry.  Re added it with my phones MAC address. Shrug.  

 

Now or what do I need to do?  How can I test this.  Nothing tells me I set it up

@JumboJ You can view and manage the devices registered to your account for Shaw Go Wifi access under the 'Internet' section in MyShaw

@JumboJ Typically you would only be prompted to register the Passpoint profile during the registration of your device. If you would like to go back and install that now, you would need to forget the ShawOpen and ShawPasspoint SSIDs on your device, then remove the device from your registered devices in MyShaw. Then visit https://www.shaw.ca/wifi/get-connected/ on the device you wish to install the profile on, and register it as a new device for Shaw Go Wifi access.

But I have deleted and added the device several times.  It’s never asked or directed me anywhere to install this profile onto my phone.

ill try one more time when I get home.  After that I really don’t know.

 

not sure why this is so difficult to connect to shawopen Networks.  At one point I tried connecting to a shawopen network and it asked for a username and password *shrug*

 

thanks

Correct.  Enter your Shaw E-mail ID, including the '@shaw.ca' suffix.  Enter your E-mail password. Click to link your device's MAC-address to your Shaw account.  Normally, this only needs to be done ONCE per device -- if you "reset" ever your device, or if you make some changes to your Shaw account (even adding/deleting TV channels, or changing from a "grandfathered" Internet plan to a new high-speed plan).
