I'd do that if calls made through it were free.  As the representative in the mall (ha!) told me though, calls made through that device were billed at the same rate as through their network, so no gain for me except for signal.  I'll use my better-featured VOIP in that case.

AT&T supposedly has one coming out soon. They don't use RF to connect to a nearby cell site, instead they use your broadband as the backhaul to the carrier. I'm interested in using one, since my AT&T cells don't work in my house. But, I'm not sure what the cost is. Yea, the lingo is a little warped.... Terry

I just learned about these. 


Anybody got one? 

Love the lingo 

Home Node B ( HNB ) 

In May 2008, the 3GPP completed a feasibility study of femtocell network architectures. Architectures including Cellular Base Station , Collapsed Stack and UMA/GAN were evaluated. As a result, the 3GPP is pursuing a new Home Node B (or HNB) reference architecture which builds on elements from both the Collapsed Stack and UMA/GAN approaches. 

As the 3GPP completes the formal standard towards at the end of 2008, vendors and operators will migrate to support this new architecture for 3G femtocells. 

Note the 3GPP refers to 3G femtocells as Home Node Bs (HNBs)."
