TMobile @home
 
Anyone know if the 8320 will work with the TMobile @home service? Is the $20 for @home on top of paying for regular hotspot access? Do any other bb's work with @home?

I *assume* the 83xx will work once it's released on T-Mo.... As of now they only advertise 2 phones that will work...

If T-Mobile does come out with the WiFi enabled version of the Curve then it would only make sense. I so hope the 8320 comes to T-Mobile soon.

From what I understand, that is the plan.

It will have wifi and no it should not be in addition to for the Hot Spot at home.

I was told by an "in the know" rep, that by subscribing to HotSpot @home, you get access to all hotspots as well.

When I asked my national account rep will there be a bb for the @home she said the 8320 which will be released in late september.

Yes, the 8320 is rumored to have wifi.

@Home, several T-Mobile reps have explained to me, is only for VoIP. If you only want a data connection for wifi, you're good to go with any wifi enabled device.

i just read about this wifi tmo offering yesterday...surprisingly, i found the article while digging the net for iphone info. i think its good, and i would buy into it (since i haven't bothered with a land line in more than 6 yrs).

However i also found some rumors floating around that RIM has already had their hands full for a while now, working on a device similar to the iphone, but better.

i bet there will be lines @ stores much longer than the ones ppl waited on for the 'ipaperweight'...imo
Anyone else can confirm this ? it would be sweet to see something like that with all the wireless bells+whistles including wifi and gps

Per my T-Mobile and RIM reps... Yes, the T-Mobile Curve will work with the Hotspot @Home service when it is released... Both VOICE and DATA.

as for the $20 covering use at "regular hotspot access", I can't say... as I didn't really didn't think to ask that question.

Hotspot @home requires the phone or blackberry to support WiFi... No current T-Mobile Blackberries have Wi-Fi, so there are no other BB's for HS@home. After the curve releases, we'll have to see T-Mobile's future BB plans...

This NY Times article seems to suggest that the service is $10/month for an "unspecified" amount of time and you may be grandfathered in when they raise the price.

@Home looks intriguing. Especially if there's a chance there will be a BB that will work with the service.

I can only imagine that there will be a BB device to support VoIP. So many businesses are international and VoIP is very useful in this context. Our office uses Skype-like VoIP all the time. This could surely be a big market for both RIM and T-Mo.

that is exactly what my T-Mobile rep told me when they showed me the curve the other week...

having an AT&T curve in my hands... I can say... I can't wait...

The $20 (currently $9.99) @home add-on is just for unlimited calling over WiFi. You can not subscribe to it and still make calls over WiFi, including every T-Mobile HotSpot, they will just come out of your bucket of minutes like normal calls.
