    there will only be one nokia phone and one samsung phone that will be launched with the new program. t-mobile routers will be free after rebate when you add the service. you can use other routers but the t-mobile one will be optimized for voice usage and will help the battery on your phone last longer...

    you can also just buy the router and use it to get A+++ reception in your home but not add the unlimited @home calling add on and just use your plan minutes. so basically it would just make you have perfect reception at home. but thats only on the two phones supported so far...it sounds like (from a lot of higher ups) that a blackberry will be launched for it soon...

    From my rep: T-Mobile @home will be launching with 4 Handsets but the handsets have not been disclosed (or at least they are not allowed to disclose them) yet.

    Hopefully the 8320 will be one of those 4.

    maybe 4 handsets in the near future, but as of the actual launch date only TWO handsets will be available. thats what the regional rep told us on a conference call this morning...

    Just decided to check my Distributor's site and they have verified this morning that the Samsung T409 and the Nokia 6086 will be launched with @home service. It will not work with SmartAccess, Regional, Prepaid, or Government plans though.

    MSRP on the Nokia is $169.99
    MSRP on the Samsung is $169.99

    Both have cameras, bluetooth, and MyFaves.

    I still can't find out what the other 2 models are supposed to be if they launch them.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~supposedly the Nokia 6136 is releasing the same day, but hard to say if that and a possible 4th model will actually be available.

    Followup: http://www.theonlyphoneyouneed.com/

    T-Mobile began its home-based Wi-Fi service today and said T-Mobile HotSpot @Home will cost subscribers an additional $19.99 a month. The service seamlessly switches subscribers back-and-forth between cell phone calls and calls made over Wi-Fi.

    T-Mobile is also offering two HotSpot phones tailored for the new Wi-Fi service. The Nokia 6086 and the Samsung t409 are each available for about $50 with a two-year contract and a T-Mobile plan.

    T-Mobile indicated it's targeting consumers who have dropped or are thinking of dropping their home landlines. "More people than ever are looking to drop their home landline phone and pocket the savings," said Robert Dotson, president and CEO of T-Mobile USA, in a statement. "However, they don't want to use all their wireless minutes talking from home. Our new service solves this dilemma."

    No surprise, though, that T-Mobile HotSpot @Home begins two days before AT&T launches its service for the Apple iPhone, which also features Wi-Fi. T-Mobile and AT&T (formerly Cingular) use the Edge data network, which is slower than the CDMA EV-DO network used by competitors Verizon Wireless, Sprint, and Alltel. Wi-Fi, where it's available, enables T-Mobile and AT&T to offer high-speed data connections for their Edge subscribers.

    T-Mobile's use of Wi-Fi follows an investment last month by its Deutsche Telekom parent in startup company Jajah, a VoIP calling service that involves a consumer calling a destination phone number and waiting for the destination number to return the call -- all at greatly reduced prices.

    T-Mobile's HotSpot @Home looks and feels like VoIP, but it isn't. It's based on Unlicensed Mobile Access (UMA) technology. UMA is supported by cell phone manufacturers and competes with VoIP technology.

    For its HotSpot @Home service, T-Mobile has partnered with router manufacturers D-Link and Linksys to provide Wi-Fi routers for use with existing broadband connections. T-Mobile said the routers are free, although a mail-in rebate is required.

    T-Mobile is offering the HotSpot @Home service for $9.99 a month for a limited period. The company, which is the fourth largest U.S. mobile phone service provider, also offers paid Wi-Fi service at 8,500 U.S. outlets, including Starbucks.
