Porting to Google Voice from T-Mobile @Home

Or how T-Mobile was happy to help me leave an unsupported product

home-logo-iconAbout 5 years ago T-Mobile launched a Voice Over IP (VoIP) product that could be bundled with your mobile service. They called this T-Mobile @Home. For $10 a month you would have a land line at home with conventional phones.

Two years after launching the product, T-Mobile discontinued selling it.  They did not stop supporting it though. Customers with @Home could continue to use the service.

Fast forward to today, T-Mobile seems to have completely stopped supporting the product without notice to the few users still on it. This left me with a service I was paying for that did not work.

What can be done?

Guild wars 2 case

The Antec 183 case arrived on Friday. Overall, the build quality is nice. The big disappointment is the quality of the Guild Wars 2 graphic. The graphic is a large sticker, which is fine. However, the fitment is poor. Poor cutting left left marks visible and the NC Soft logo cut off. The printing looks like someone rendered the original vector file into a raster, possibly JPG prior to sending it o the printer. There are obvious artifacts in the details of the printing. Was it worth paying MSRP for the case, sort of. Would I do it again? no.
