    Will The [email protected] Service Continue After The Proposed AT&T Merger?

    Hi All!

    I hope my beloved [email protected] Service continues after the proposed [email protected] merger as it is not only a great value ($10.00 a month) but the quality of the phone service is excellent. In my opinion, the quality of the phone calls matched the quality of the phone calls I received on my former landline service (which incidentally was [email protected]!)

    I know it is too soon to speculate as to what will happen to the [email protected] service, since the proposed [email protected] merger is in its early stages, but I would like to get some comments from people with similar concerns.

    Thank you in advance for your thoughts and comments on this subject!

    It's a contracted line of service so, there is less to worry about there but AT&T could still kill the service if they wanted to. We should have some recourse though.

    I have @Home service and I love it too
    Bye!

    Hi!

    Thanks for your reply!

    I have a question for you, in August 2009, I signed on for the [email protected] service. When the @home service contract is up in Aug. 2011, do I have to call up T-Mobile to renew it or is it automatically renewed?

    I am not sure how this works, as I have never had the [email protected] service before, so I would appreciate your advice. Thanks!

    once contract expires, you're automatically
    a month to month subscriber. so technically
    if only the @home is out of contract, then
    it doesn't hurt to extend it for another two
    years since we all love that service. this
    way at least you'd have two extra years
    of uninterrupted service.

    after which it's all up in the air if att would
    have closed @home to new subscriptions.
    hopefully existing ones can remain valid for
    as long as they'll allow.

    but, i get the feeling that att will tell ftc+fcc
    that they are just taking over t-mo, allowing
    it to stand alone as a "low-cost" carrier as
    opposed to premium carrier that is att. lol.
    just like a car maker has several models of
    cars for different demographics. you get me?
    then after a while, they can say oh well...t-mo
    is not making any money, so we'll just dissolve
    it into att altogether. just another way of getting
    around the ftc+fcc to garner approval to merge.

    for all our sake, i pray att get's punk'd. this coming
    from someone who is no longer living in the states.
    but still maintain service for my family members.
    i got lucky having the old grandfathered 'unlimited
    tzones" for $2.99 before i left the country. they gave
    it to me as a farewell present, knowing still i remain
    loyal to t-mo. i am using @home/uma to phone home.

    They could do what AT&T did to CallVantage, waive any ETF's and possibly refund any equipment costs and set a date for sunset.

    I am with the OP on this, love this service and will hate to give it up. I am betting yes this service will be terminated. I was with AT&T Call Vantage (VoIP) before using TMobile @Home serice. AT&T terminated that service to push AT&T U-verse home phone service. If [email protected] does stick around for a while, be prepared to have the rates jump up to $35/month, which is the current U-verse home phone unlimited calling plan.
