Default T-Mobile wi-fi profiles on 8320

Please Login to Remove!

On my new tmo 8320 there are two default saved wi-fi profiles under options>wi-fi connections. They are "HotSpot" and "@Home" - Anyone know what the difference between these?

I presume one is starbucks and other T-Mo hotspot locations, and the other is a T-Mo branded linksys router.

They're automatic logins for your UMA service, so that there will be seemless handoff with HotSpot routers and H@H gear without you needing to configure anything. You cannot view, edit or delete the info so my *guess* is that there are username/password types of things inside those configs (but I haven't verified).

I would think:

hotspots = any of the thousands of TMO hotspots worldwide, eg starbucks, mcdonalds, etc.

@Home = hotspot@home, assume you have signed up for this, i.e. using WiFi at home for free calls.
