    Default T-Mobile Hotspot @ Home for iPhone

    Now that it's clear iPhone will soon be easily available for use on T-Mobile here in the U.S., it's a good time to start asking how we get T-Mobile's new Hot Spot @ Home VoIP calling service to function seamlessly on the iPhone! When T-Mobile eventually launches this service in Europe, they'll likely use the system they developed in the States, so this important work will have a huge impact!

    If some genius in the community can figure this out , this will give us all UNLIMITED MINUTES from our iPhones on any open & compatible WiFi network. When combined with T-Mobile's generally good-value calling plans, this will be a real contribution to eventually hundreds of thousands of people worldwide.

    We need a competent team who wants to work on this! (preferably someone who wants to use the feature as much as I do on their iPhone! ). If you are willing to lead this, perhaps you can reply here, and others can join you?

    Also, the team will probably need one of the HotSpot @ Home handsets, currently the SamSung t409 and/or a Nokia 6086, and possibly a D-Link TM-G5240 or the Linksys router that is designed for use with the service. Any volunteers to donate?

    P.S. To get the unlimited WiFi calls via HotSpot @ Home, you have to add a HotSpot @ Home plan to your account. Right now T-Mobile has a promotion where you can lock it in for $9.99 a month, and it will stay that low for as long as you keep it active. This promotion ends Sept. 4th, when it goes to $19.99 a month -- I know people who have 1,000 minutes for $29.99 b/c they locked that deal in when it came out =-) ). I've already added the feature to lock in my long-term $9.99 per month unlimited WiFi calling deal -- now I just need HotSpot @ Home calling for iPhone!

    I was thinking the same thing. The chipset supposedly supports many features, maybe UMA is one of them.

    This sounds like a nice project but I am already getting 1000min and unlimited nights and weekends for my money. I don't need more minutes. I just need my damn $600 iphone to work on their network. Where is my freakin software unluck people ?

    Thumbs up

    Oh, yeah, I forgot ... I have the 1,000 minutes too, which is great ... EXCEPT ... the catch with T-Mobile is that you get 1,000 minutes, but there are only 5 square feet within which you get GSM reception, and the inside of my house ain't amongst them! And I actually do chew through all 1,000 minutes per month, and then have to use the land line.

    So in addition to expanding the usability of my iPhone by adding more minutes, I'll be able to stop having conversation on my driveway (my neighbors know WAY too much about my life ) To say I have a personal bais would be putting it lightly, but there are hundreds of thousands (millions?) of other people all around the world who have the same issue. I just wish I was a technically savy whiz like the DevTeam folks, so I could figure this out for everyone else. But about all I can do is encourage and cheer from the sidelines!

    I would certainly help in any way I could. I'm not an expert coder or reverse engineering guru, but I am great at research.

    Here is a link to the UMA specs, and the blackberry Curve should be released on September 24th supporting this so maybe we can enlist some of the Blackberry community in this effort to get at the source code for T-Mobile's implementation of this.
