T-Mobile Launches UMA Service In Seattle
Oct 23, 2006, 6:21 PM by (staff)
T-Mobile today rolled out the HotSpot @Home service in Seattle area stores. "HotSpot @Home" is T-Mobile's brand name for Universal Mobile Access (UMA) which allows a cell phone to make voice or data calls using pre-approved Wi-Fi hotspot instead of the cellular network. In order to use @Home, customers need a compatible phone with Wi-Fi. T-Mobile is selling the Nokia 6136 and Samsung T709 for $50 each with a 2 year contract. The @Home service then costs an additional $20 per month for unlimited calling from a home access point as well as any T-Mobile hotspot. T-Mobile is also giving away a Wi-Fi access point for customers who do not have one already. The service is expect to launch in additional markets but has not announced any plans as of yet.
What about MDA & SDA?
Atleast they are making progress
Cool but greedy
From what I hear....
But that is just a rumor...
Rich or Eric, is that price the real standard price for the feature?
$20 for UMA only or Hotspot data service as well?
