Does Wi-Fi calling work in hotspots?

I was wondering if anyone knew if Wi-Fi calling worked when you are connected to a hotspot? (As in, the kind of wifi connection that opens a web page and you have to enter a username and password like in many hotels) I'm transferring my BB Torch on my Fido line next month and I'd like to make sure it works.

Hi WickyLeBlond,

The Nokia 6301 does NOT work with a Hotspot like the one you are referring to, typically called a Data Valet Page, etc. typically found in Hotels, etc.

But I have had success with my RIM 8520 Curve using a hotel's Wi-Fi connection and logging in to a hotel data valet hotspot. There was the odd hotel that I could not sign in to, but most of them worked on the 8520.
