Sprint AIRAVE - Now This Looks Good!
Caution: Not a new Phone!
Looks like I can dump Vonage though!
OVERLAND PARK, Kan. ó 09/17/2007
Sprint (NYSE: S) customers in select areas of Denver and Indianapolis will now be able to enjoy enhanced wireless coverage and unlimited minutes in their homes with today's limited launch of the Sprint AIRAVE by Samsung in the two cities. The Sprint AIRAVE is the first commercially available femtocell, a compact base station that works with any Sprint phone and a broadband Internet connection to provide enhanced in-home wireless coverage plus unlimited calling.
"With the AIRAVE, Sprint is delivering an enhanced in-home coverage solution that's simple to access, low in cost and compatible with any Sprint phone," said Ajit Bhatia, director of product management for Sprint. "In addition, with unlimited in-home wireless calling, the AIRAVE makes it even more convenient for customers to rely on their Sprint phones at home."
With the Sprint AIRAVE by Samsung, Sprint customers can:
Get enhanced coverage in their homes.
Talk all they want while in their homes, without worrying about using their wireless minutes. Unlimited incoming and outgoing calls and nationwide long distance are included while using a Sprint phone at home.
Take advantage of enhanced coverage and unlimited home calling without having to purchase a new phone. All Sprint phones are compatible with the AIRAVE.
Reduce their monthly communication expenses. AIRAVE service is priced at just $15 per month for individuals and $30 per month for families, in addition to the customer's regular wireless voice plan.
Easily install the device using their existing broadband Internet service and a power outlet.
Have their calls automatically transferred back to the Nationwide Sprint PCS Network when they leave home.
Starting today, Sprint customers in select areas of Denver and Indianapolis will be able to purchase the AIRAVE at area Sprint stores for $49.99. Sprint plans to make the AIRAVE available later this year to customers in the remainder of Denver and Indianapolis, along with Nashville, and to customers nationwide in 2008.
For more information regarding the AIRAVE's availability in their area, customers should visit www.sprint.com/airave. There customers can enter their ZIP code to find out if they are in a limited launch area. Customers not in a limited launch area can then register on the site to receive notification when AIRAVE is available to them.

Only if you are in one of the lucky places that offers the service....
I am not sure that I understand why theses devices are only being sold in some arears. It seems to me that they should sell them everywhere the internet is (LOL). Anybody know a reason that they can't be sold everywhere?
I hope they roll this out nation wide soon!

as i said over on HOFO about this topic, this is a poor attempt by sprint to sidestep their crappy 1900mhz building penetration to keep people from going to other carriers. Sure, by reports you can just buy the "box/unit" itself to improve indoor coverage by they should be giving these things away to people who are in poor coverage areas or their buildings/homes are affecting signal, not making the customer spend ANOTHER $50 to get something working how it should be.

PDA User had 2 so far
meh I have a phone through time warner cable its really reliable and roughly costs me $25 a month. I have 8.0 MBs internet, digital cable with dvr, and digital box in my room and phone and all i pay is $99 a month. I don't see myself switching to airwave since it would cost more for 2 phones than I pay currently!
