A. T-Mobile offers the right combination of technologies and capabilities such as:
• TMO offers a nationwide voice and data network to support connectivity when on the go.
• TMO has deployed an extensive Wi-Fi Hot Spot network with over 9,000 locations in the US to enable customers to take full advantage of the high-speed Wi-Fi features of the h6300.

Q. What are the details of the T-Mobile service agreement for this device? Will subscribers be privy to discounts on additional items?

Q. Is there an exclusive agreement to sell this product with T-Mobile for a certain period?
A. We are initially bringing this product to market with T-Mobile and then will look to certify this product under additional carriers. We cannot go into additional details about carrier agreements.
