When will the Wi-Fi CellSpot Router be available, and what is the best way for me to purchase one?
I would also like to purchase one .
no information anywhere
I'm also interested, but can't seem to find how to get one.
I saw Sept 17th in store. Have not seen anything about online ordering.
Why T-Mobile wants to give you a wireless router for free
Thanks ryball - I read that article this morning as well. Not sure if I should anticipate a line or probably more likely the news will roll out slowly to the 99% of the customers that haven't heard yet.
seems like marketing got out of sync with stores and operations on this one.
I'm also interested. I see there would only be a $25 deposit required. I'm assuming you "borrow" the router, to return it upon end of contract. Would be nice to have information on how to request one.
Just ordered it over the phone. DO IT NOW, OR AT LEAST BEFORE THE 24TH. TRUST ME. Free ship, too.
does this thing have any use whatsoever for iphone 5s and earlier phones without wi-fi calling?
No, but you there is a swap program "for a limited time" to get a phone that is WiFi calling enabled (ahem iphone6)
It's in there somewhere I think.

thanks for the confirmation - I have zero interest in the 6 or the 6 plus so that's not for me.
Just an FYI, the routers will now not be available until the 24th. I stopped by T-Mobile this morning to pick one up and they said there is a company wide issue with populating the serial numbers and MAC addresses in their system and so they are delaying the launch despite having them in stock.
Has anyone successfully picked one up yet?
I called Tmobile, and they are sending one to arrive at my house by Friday, September 26 (Denver). Honestly, I have a router currently and am in no rush, so this doesn't bother me.
I called one representative, and she said I only qualified for $99 to buy it.
I called the local store, and he said I had to come into the store, and I could get one for $25 refundable deposit, but he thinks there's a promotion where the deposit is waived.
I called back to Tmobes, and the girl processed my order for no cost (no purchase, no deposit, no shipping, etc.).
I have yet to confirm that it was actually $0, but this seems to be supported by #2 & #3 calls.
UPDATE: Just looked on my Tmobes page, and it was processed for $0. Gotta love the magenta (as an almost 13-year customer, I gotta say they never cease to amaze me).
I told you guys to call before the 24th! I got the same everything waved deal as srj228. Text confirm that it will be delivered by the 26th. $free.99
same for me, just ordered today, everything was free. also was told the 4G LTE Signal Booster will be available on the 24 also, as not all my phones are tmobile branded.
