About a year ago, T-Mobile USA launched Hotspot@Home, a service that encourages people to drop their landline by allowing customers to roam on to Wi-Fi to get unlimited phone calls for $10 a month. Today, it is launching a follow-on product called T-Mobile @Home, which allows people to have a home phone using VoIP. Britt Wehrman, T-Mobile's director of product development, told me that they developed the product because some people were still reluctant to cut their landline.

we're already t-mo cell phone users so we'll be getting this when we move next month for sure! Best thing is - your number is automatically private, just like your cell number.

I am watching the reviews on this one. My contract is up in March and this would be perfect for me. I talked to T-Mobile and for $50 plus tax I can have a cell and landline. I have not had a landline for 10 years now. Please report back on how the service is. I'm self employed and usually at home so I could forward my calls to the cell when I am away. This sounds to good to be true for me.

What little experience I had with T-Mobile was a good one. And I had VOiP with Vonage and a Cox leftover system they sold to a putz on the East coast. The result was a disasterr. Either the cable didn't work or Vonage didn't work. This is one of the pitfalls of living in a rural area that is far removed from a metro area lite LA or NY. Nevertheless I wish the T good luck and I have high hopes for it. Maybe someday I will return to an area where T-Moblie reigns supreme, .

Thanks for the reply I'm ready to give them a try in a few months. I called and I can get a WiFi phone that will not use my minutes and unlimited WiFi internet access for about 60.00 plus tax. I live in a hotspot and most places I go are in a hotspot so I won't use minutes on my cell unless I wander to far away from home. It sounds almost to go to be true if anyone is using this service now I'd love to know if you like it.

Oh heck yeah, I know of a few people who have it and despite the small screen, its less bulky than a laptop and just as convenient.

I'm sorry, I'm confused. What is?
