T-Mobile HotSpot @Home Review

Basics Using It Video Wrap Up Comments  63  

Intro Technology Setting Up First Experiences  

While all this technology might sound complicated, in practice, it could not have been easier to use. We received a review unit (a Nokia 6086) and D-Link Wi-Fi router from T-Mobile. T-Mobile suggests that subscribers use its branded routers for optimal performance, but it will also work on existing unlocked Wi-Fi networks, as well as all T-Mobile HotSpots such as those in Starbucks and Borders.

We unboxed the router and plugged it into our home network. We already have a regular Wi-Fi router, so this meant we had two Wi-Fi networks up and running. Once we turned on the phone, it automatically connected to the T-Mobile HotSpot without us having to configure the phone or make any adjustments. This was all the set up required: plugging in the router and turning on the phone. It doesn't get much easier than that.
