I have poor T-mobile signal in my office at home. I signed up for Hot spots @ Home and now my entire house has great reception. When using H@H my calls are free, (not charged against my bucket of minutes.) Assuming you have a blackberry data plan, you will also get your e-mail and internet using H@H.
Should you not sign up to H@H, you can also use the WiFi (H@H) setup but you calls will come out of you bucket of plan minutes. E-mail and internet will also work. Again, assuming you have an unlimited data plan with T-Mobile, no charges will occur.
Call T-mobile and check it out. H@H has enhanced my service with t-mobile in many ways. The top two would be:
Unlimited calling in my home; like having an additional house line.
Just about any WiFi service, even over-seas is free.
