T-Mobile USA today launched T-Mobile @Home, a service that allows customers to connect their home phone to T-Mobile service for $10/month with unlimited national calling. The service requires a broadband Internet connection, and uses a special router, which can also be used for T-Mobile's Hotspot @Home service that creates a short-range "tower" for T-Mobile cell phones using UMA technology. This service was previously trialled in Dallas and Seattle as "T-Mobile Hotspot @Home Talk Forever". A T-Mobile cell phone plan of at least $39/month is required to qualify for the $10/month add-on rate.

Hurry and get this!

This is a real good buy for 10 bucks. All you people should do this now before prices go up. If you get it at 10 bucks they cant change it on you. Hurry all you MPLS people and head to your Uptown store and sign up. Smile
This is the permanent price.

This offer is the best in the US. I currently have this and its great. I've sold already 5 of these modems. I sell these for only 29.87 at Sam's Club in Mankato,Mn. This is the best deal in town if not nation wide. The difference between this and vona...

Internation call rates?

Anyone know what the international call rates for this service? One of the big draws of Vonage etc is the low-price or free international calling.
Same as what they are for T-Mobile cell calls.

so now you will never need a landline?

as long as you have broadband and the router?

what an age we live in.

i dont talk much, to need this service, but i think it is truly remarkable.

i wonder if the ATT femtocells will give this a run for its money upon its release...
Femtocells, as far as I can tell, actually broadcast a gsm signal for a monthly service fee. This is COMPLETELY different and completely incomparable. This is land-line replacement for 10 bucks a month. We do STILL have the hotspot@home service which ...

Free Coverage?

I don't like the idea that T-Mobile would get free coverage for their customers with my $10 per month.. what's the deal with this mini "tower" idea?
That's not right at all. Only ceratin handsets can connect to a wireless router and you can set up security so only phones you own can connect to the router. It runs off 802.11g normal wifi. The hi-port router is only for the @home service which is a ...

Some disambiguations:

The T-mobile @ home service is a land-line replacement. 10 dollars a month gets you unlimited nationwide long distance, unlimited minutes, caller ID, etc. and uses a regular home telephone. The telephone connects to a special wireless router with 2 spots for sim cards. You can have up to two lines per router.


T-Mobile still has it's Hot Spot @home service which lets certain wifi enabled phones, like their new Nokia 6301 or Samsung t339, connect to any normal wireless router to #1 get a service boost and #2 get unlimited calling with a 9.99/mo add on.

The 9.99/mo for the @home service will cover the unlimited calling on the UMA (hotspot@home) handsets as far as I know right now.

You have to have existing broadband service ...
