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.

Unlimited free calling on Wi-Fi costs an extra $10 a month for a single line, or $20 for a family plan with up to five lines. Those are, however, promotional offers. The regular price for each plan is $10 higher. The company hasn't said how long the p...
This is an excellent opportunity for customers with poor or no service at home, all they need is a high speed connection. Small Business customers can also take advantage of this. Saves hundreds of $$$ maybe.Ditch the landline. How is it barely worth ...
The thing is... consumers like to consolidate. Your regular home phone is upwards of $20 a month, especially if you don't have VoIP service. Even after the price goes up, its only $30 a month for up to five lines to use the service. And its unlimited ...
