I've been a loyal customer and fan of T-Mobile since the early days of Voicestream. In the beginning it was because they were the only GSM provider I knew of in Hawaii and since I traveled and purchased cell phones a lot in Europe it was the obvious choice. Lately I've been staying with them because they keep impressing me with special deals (for loyal customers like me) and when you call them and have a request or problem they really do listen and take care of it.

For the last 2 years I've had home phone service through Time Warner. I loved the call quality, speed, and caller ID on the TV. What I didn't like was the price. I was paying $40/month, which doesn't sound that much but it is when compared to other VoIP providers around the world. Last week I decided to move my home phone service to T-Mobile. Yes, they offer that too. Since I already had a family plan it cost me only $10/month for the @Home service. Ten bucks! That is a savings of $30/month from what I had before. The call quality and speed is amazingly good. My family in Europe didn't even notice a difference. They forced me to buy an additional "phone" router for a one-time fee of $80 but that is well worth it......it will take less than 3 months to make up for that cost and the router is made by Cisco so I figure it will hold its value.

Anyway, if you need a home phone service, I urge you to consider @Home by T-Mobile.

Disclaimer: I'm a T-Mobile customer since 1998 but have no other interests or gains in the company.

Yeah, I'd better check the coverage ... our house is in Makakilo. 3G would be nice, but I can wait a little for that.

Yeah, as with any carrier....there are good spots and bad spots. I'm luck to have great coverage both at home and at work.

For GSM, you only have a choice of T-Mobile and AT&T in Hawaii. For good prices and service go with T-Mobile. If you want 3G you have to go with AT&T because T-Mo has not rolled out their 3G in Hawaii yet....something they say will come next year.

Helpful information - my wife and I are on our way back to the islands after 2 years in Europe, and I was hoping to stick with a GSM provider so we don't have to buy new phones. I was planning to ask if T-Mobile had good service, pricing, fans, etc. ... the @home service is good to know about too.

Thanks for sharing!
