AT&T today made its home phone product more appealing by adding a pre-paid option to the service. AT&T Wireless Home Phone lets homeowners port their old landline to AT&T's wireless network, allowing them to keep their home number, but use it as a wireless device. Wireless Home Phone costs $9.99 per month when added to an existing FamilyTalk plan, or $19.99 per month for unlimited nationwide calling. Wireless Home Phone handsets are free when purchased with a new two-year contract. The new pre-paid option, available beginning March 22, allows consumers to pay $99.99 up front for the Wireless Home Phone device, and then provides two calling plan options. The pre-paid plans offer unlimited domestic calling for $20 per month, and 1000 minutes of international calling to Mexico, Canada, and 50 other countries for an additional $15 per month. AT&T Wireless Home Phone includes voicemail, caller ID, and call waiting.

Wireless Home Phone

I do not understands why At&t Drops Home Phone Service. Wireless is not as reliable as the Landline. And God forbid if there were to be a national disaster, specially in CA, Where r we going o turn too. Not the wireless I can assure, it'll be the Old Fashion Landline. I think it's a big mistake and should re-consider this process. 😲
It is chiefly for portability. When you move to a different town (let alone a different state), you cannot take your home phone number with you. You are required to get a new home phone number. Some people are *loathe* to change their home phone numbe...
Wireless isn't reliable? Really? This is 2013, cell towers are everywhere, their on billboards, tops of buildings, alongside highways, ...things aren't like how they use to be 15-20 years ago.

Cell service is just fine.
I've been with two wireless...
Um, the world is a bigger place than California. I went through several hurricanes where the landline service was lost but I always had cellphone access. The only danger then was the potential for the battery to drain.
