No specific details have been released in regards to the signal booster, but this news is bound to excite many people that carry AT&T and live or work in fringe areas.

ATT definatly needs one of these. Anything to support a crappy network. "more bars in more places" ...yeah whatever, not in the US

AT&T's NETWORK is the Absolute Worst!!!!!!!!!!! its about time they did Femto or UMA.... I have to take calls for interviews on new jobs and I cannot use my cell phone from home as the coverage is horrible in my house... So I have to sign up for landline which is "backwards".

T-Mobile's UMA is weak. Doesn't work unless I'm standing next to the base station. Can't wait to cancel that line in 2 months. My BB Curve works fine with AT&T.

Maybe it sucks because your WIFI signal is weak just like your BRAIN. In order for UMA(unregistered mobile access) to work good is if you have a WIFI connection. Crappy connection= Crappy UMA service dummy!!! Stop trying to cheat the system and get a real rate plan or maybe you have the basic 29.99 (300) minuites with ONLY WEEKENDS..... and you have to use UMA so you dont waste your crappy little 300 mins Cheap Scate stop complaining because TMobile defenitely doesnt need petty customers like you that want to use UMA to get free minutes I am glad you are going to cancel get expensive gaggin ass Verizon or even crappier AT&T or maybe sign a two year with Alltel so you can get the my circle cheapo

Verizon doesn't need femtocells, their coverage is everywhere.

almost everywhere. but at my house i have 0 to 2 bars. i constatnly have to go by the windows when i answer a call. the person on the other line always says, "whatd you just say, your breaking up!" then sometimes i get call was lost...but thats what a house phone is for lol...howver at&t is the same way, if not worse where i live. i think its good for a carrier to relase these femtocells

why...oh WHY! do people stay with AT&T and why do people still keep going to AT&T when they are known to have a bad network??? Even Verizon is about to become the largest (and still the most reliable) network in the country. And if its bacause of global roaming, well Verizon is starting release more international phones (ie. Samsung RENOWN) They may not have the iPhone, which is overrated, but they have a CDMA network. And all those that swear that GSM is better....you know that most GSM 3G networks run on UMTS or aka W-CDMA! And that "more bars more places" claim I don't think means for the US, it probably means global roaming coverage. I know I have more bars on Verizon than any AT&T customer I've met. AT&T customers are constantly having to borrow my phone.

Carrier fanboyism sucks. Different networks appeal to different people. For the longest, I always thought that AT&T was more for business type customers, Verzion/Sprint for the average joe, and T-Mobile for those who want cell phones as fashion accessories. I like AT&T and I don't care if you don't. I've had great customer service with them and as far as I know, I get a signal everywhere I go. Stop bashing cell phone carriers and just enjoy your phones damn it!

i agree. i hate ppl who come on here and all they say is verizon is the best. it is overall coverage. i hate ppl who say, well at&t has coverage where i live and verizon doesnt. so just stick with gayt&t then. lol. i still dont understand the word fanboy.

And you you call yourself vzw fanboy (I'm guessing it's out of sarcasm) and don't understand the word? Seriously, doesn't matter what carrier your with. Not one carrier is perfect. Everyone has a choice of a carrier that they want to be with. Why should it affect you that I

i understand the word but why do ppl use boy, its pretty gay to me. the reason why i put it there is bc ppl call me it any way. when have i ever said verizon is perfect? lol. i agree if there werent any choices and verizon was the only carrier that would be a monopoly and that would be bad! we need different choices of carriers. sprint needs a mint cause their service stinks lol. (on average)

I love AT&T. However nobody gets service in my house. Verizon/sprint/nextel/tmobile etc. So I would buy one of these in a heartbeat. Sucks having an iPhone and No service in the house.
