T-Mobile has announced the debut of their unlimited wifi phone (think VOIP) service, called “Hotspot @Home”. For only $20.00 per month, you can make unlimited Hotspot @ Home calls from, well, your Hotspot at home, as well as from any Tmobile Hotspot location (such as the bazillions of Starbucks around the country).
In order to access the service at home, you have to get a special home router from Tmobile, for which they will charge you but then rebate back the entire amount.
While it is unclear whether other wifi enabled phones will work with the HotSpot @Home home router, there seems to be no reason that they shouldn’t work with the other T-Mobile hotspots.
The service is currently only available in Seattle, but T-Mobile has pledged to add other areas soon, and you can sign up to be notified when your area comes online at the http://www.theonlyphoneyouneed.com site.
