T-Mobile Takes HotSpot@Home National
Jun 27, 2007, 12:13 AM by (staff)
T-Mobile today announced nationwide availability of its HotSpot@Home calling service. This uses special Wi-Fi equipped handsets to transfer voice calls to designated HotSpots when they are in range. When calls are made over a wireless network instead of a cellular network, they do not count against the subscriber's monthly minutes, however they will have to pay a monthly flat fee to take advantage of the service. Two compatible phones, the Nokia 6086 and Samsung T409, are available for $50 with a two year contract. A $50 access point will be free after rebate. T-Mobile is launching the service at a promotional rate of $10 per month for individuals and $20 for family plans. The rates will increase another $10 per month after the promotion has ended.

Yes, unless you want to be seen as ignorant...
Good idea, bad implementation. As usual the customer gets screwed.
