T-Mobile Hotspot @ Home

My friend just told me about this new plan named T-Mobile Hotspot @ Home and it sounds like a pretty cool concept. Basically, the idea is to use a Wi-Fi hotspot instead of a signal tower to make cell phone calls. If you use a Wi-Fi hotspot to make the call, all the minutes will be free, no matter where you're located, even in another country.

After reading about the details, here're some reasons you may consider using this new service:
  • You're currently a T-Mobile customer and don't really have good signal at home but you have a broadband Internet connection
  • You're currently a T-Mobile customer and do have good signal at home, but you talk so much that you always use up your airtime minutes (you know who you're)
  • You like to hang out at Starbucks and Borders bookstores and like to talk a lot on the cell at those places (Starbucks and Borders are T-Mobile HotSpot locations)
  • You want to get a free Linksys or D-Link wireless router after a $50 rebate
  • You want to get a Nokia 6086 or a Samsung t409 for 50 bucks
It's not that useful for me since I don't stick to the phone like teenage girls do :P
