Meaning some people will think that if they get the talkforever plan for 9.99 that they will be able to use the internet at there leisure as I did! The hot spot at home old name you could do that get internet and hotspot and calls at home for 19.99 they are not just changing the name an lowering the price! Dont assume I have not done and research of my own!
I think you are getting your hotspots mixed up!! They have essentially just renamed it and lowered the price. The $19.99 Hotspot addon you refer to hasn't changed:
* - New H@H Talk Forever Mobile $9.99 add on - unlimited calls over UMA. No Hotspot login id and password
* - Old $19.99 H@H add-on - unlimited calls over UMA. No Hotspot login id and password (same as the new $9.99 plan)
* - Hotspots (still at $19.99 on the website) - unlimited wifi internet at T-Mob Hotspots. Does not give any UMA or data plans over GSM or over wifi in your house.
* - $19.99 T-Mobile Total Internet - unlimited dataplan for non-Blackberry devices - comes with a userid for T-Mob Hotspots. Does not give unlimited UMA calling either at home or anywhere else.
And yes I know you +could+ sign up for the last two plans to use exclusively with your BB - but I'm not sure why you would. If you used a laptop then you might want to do this.
