When I click on "Turn Airport On", it automatically shows "xfinitywifi" as the only option; a few seconds later the pull-down list will show about a dozen or so other options, including my own T-Mobile connection. When I "Open Network Preferences" and enter my T-Mobile connection in the Network Name line, then click Apply, then Lock, everything should be OK from there one (as I understand it) and the next time I click on "Turn Airport On" it should automatically open to what I have specified (T-Mobile).

NOT.

Right back to xfinitywifi and go through the entire sequence again.

Q-1: Am I or am I not correctly understanding what the network name preference business is supposed to do; and

Q-2: Why does Airport then ignore what I have "applied" and "locked"?

Any assistance appreciated. Thanks.

You didn't mention what version of OS X you are using, but if you click the Advanced button in the Network System Preferences, on the screen that opens you should see the WiFi networks that will auto log onto. You can drag these items into preferred ordered. Move your T-Mobile connection to the top.
