T-Mobile @Home Launches
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.

so now you will never need a landline?
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...
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 ...
