Yes. I purchased the H@H add-on.
No. No Hotspot for me.
I didn't get the H@H plan, but my curve detected the wireless router that I have at home and does work in UMA Wifi, does that mean that I still will get charged for mins if I do not have H&H?
^^^ Nevermind to my post above, just got my answer from this thread :
It is wifi calling, but it uses your minutes, which i'm perfectly fine with, since i NEVER go over my mins anyway. I love this phone!
~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i got it. Even if ya don't use all ya minutes.its good to have.especialy if ya live in an area with real bad coverage.I use the my faves when I've no coverage.then I'm able to find a wifi signal.an I save my mins.(300).
I'm getting so confused. So is this right?
No h@h..You can receive wifi from your home router and it will surf faster, but calls are still using minutes?
With h@h.. You can surf faster and any calls made do not use minutes and you need it to access from a starbucks?
How do you know that you are using h@h? When I am at home it picks up my router. Is there something I need to do to turn on h@h? I have signed up for it, but not sure how to use it or the advantages.
~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
The main reason that I got H@H was that the building that I work in blocks all signals. The people that do get reception in the building are on ATT (repeater on the roof). I have a huge wireless network around the building so the best option for me was to use H@H. It works like a champ. The only trouble that I really have are the larger than normal deadspots in places, and leaving the building. When I leave in the evening the phone will hold UMA because I dont have enough time to grab a TMO tower.
With HS@H add-on: when you make/receive calls over wifi/UMA they are unlimited/free
You know when you are using HS@H as the signal strength indicator changes to UMA. If you don't need the extra minutes then there's no point in signing up for the HS@H addon (unless it is to take advantage of the free router T-Mobile offers and then remove the add-on once the rebate check arrives).
I havent added it yet but I am waiting o nwife to relenquish her old 7105t and get the 8120. She's had it so long that the 7 button doesnt work any more...and go figure, we live in Orlando (407) Once she gets that, I am racing down to the nearest T-Mobile store to pick this up because with my Curve, I pick up WiFi all over the place....now only if my church had WiFi.....
FREAKIN' CRAZY about my T-Mobile 7100t
Yup. I set this up to utilize UMA. I need to do something about this international roaming charges and this seems to be a good workaround.
