Summary: The primary reason I bought this was to replace a non-functional unit. I am not using the WIFI feature since I have an N router, so I am not using the antenna. I am using it for two VOI T-Mobile lines. This is a grandfathered service so I was unable to find a new unit. This unit seems to do what I need it to do, so I am happy.
Good only if you have grandfathered plan from 2008 and need a spare/backup

Summary: This router was great back-in-the day when T-Mobile launched the "T-Home" (or "T-Mobile @Home service"). I got the service around 2008, just before it was discontinued (then grandfathered by TMO), and have had this up until the beginning of 2014. I switched it out because Linksys/Cisco was no longer providing updates to the firmware. The last customized revision of the firmware was put out by T-Mobile/Cisco from 2010.
Summary: Product did not work. Bought to replace my broken unit and this one had the same problem. The router worked but the phone component did not. The router is old and newer routers are available for little money. The main reason to buy this is for the phone service and it did not function properly.
Summary: I had one of these and used it for about 8 yrs., worked very good. I received my T-Mobil-home phone with the use of this unit with a big savings on phone bills. My phone bill was only $9.00/mo. with very good reception and all the phone pluses. My first unit had the doors that hold the little phone card in place. I have no idea what caused this and so I bought the one off ebay. I would recommend it to anyone that needs one.
Summary: I purchased this as a replacement for 3-year-old T-Mobile @ Home. While T-Mobile no longer sells or provides equipment, it continues providing service if you have the equipment. I have not experienced any compatibility issues with the previous internet provider (Comcast) nor the current provider (AT&T U-Verse). I also split the feed from the router to the phone back into the house wall jack thus making all the telephone ports/jacks in the house hot for additional phones.
Summary: IT'S SAD THAT THEY DON'T MANUFACTURED ANYMORE. I HAD ONE AND NEED TO REPLACE IT AFTER 12 YEARS. NEVER HAD A PROBLEM WITH IT BUT DECIDE TO STOP WORKING. FOR ELECTRONICS THING 12 YEARS IS A LOT FOR ME. I WISH THEY BEGIN TO MAKE THEM AGAIN.
Summary: I've been using this router for the past two years or so after paying for the 'hotspot' service with T-Mobile. It's nothing fancy, but it's easy to manage and even with 3 - 4 wireless users, I still get decent speed. Although, I'd recommend buying a better router, settling for this wouldn't disappoint a basic user.
Excellent service with shipping from this seller would buy from them again.

Summary: Excellent service with shipping (Local) Product worked Bought to replace a broker router for TMOBILE at home service after 3 years.. WIFI works great on it. Router in general is a cheap linksys excuse for a phone service router. sim cards holders break VERY Easily (which i already knew) But that is only if you want to use it for TMO at home service.
