The address you register may be provided to emergency responders during a 9-1-1 call. Remember to update your address each time you move.

Features
Voicemail*:
Your home phone’s voicemail works like your T-Mobile wireless phone’s voicemail. To access voicemail, dial 123 on your home phone that is connected to your T-Mobile Router. The voicemail system will prompt you to type a password, which will be the last four digits of your new home phone number. After you are in the voicemail box, follow the tutorial to setup your voicemail and change your password to any 4-7 digit code. Accessing your voicemail from another phone: 1. Type your T-Mobile home phone number and then press the (*) star key to interrupt the greeting. 2. At the prompt, type your password.
Notes: You will know you have a new voicemail when the blue LED on your router is blinking or you hear a stuttered dial tone on your home phone. You can also use a compatible answering machine with your home phone while plugged into your T-Mobile Router. Simply make sure to set your answering machine to pick up by the third ring so that the call does not route to your T-Mobile VoiceMail.

Why can’t I wirelessly connect to my router? Make sure that the network name (SSID) and security settings are the same on your Router, computer, and the device you are trying to connect wirelessly. Change the channel on your router to reduce interference. Channels 1, 6, and 11 usually give the best results. Move your router so it is at least three feet away from other electrical devices that create radio frequency noise; such as cordless phones, microwave ovens, computer monitors, and electric motors. Place your router in the most central location of the house and not in a closet, cabinet, or garage. Does it matter which Phone slot (Line 1 or 2) is used for inserting the SIM card? No, it does not matter which slot you use, but you need to use the corresponding phone port. So if you use Line 1, you need to use the Phone1 port on the back of your router for the connection. Why can’t I connect to the Internet? Check that the Power LED is solid green, the Internet LED is flashing green, and one of the numbered Ethernet LEDs is green. Check that the modem is connected to your router’s Internet port, that the computer is connected to one of the numbered Ethernet ports, and that your router’s power adapter is connected to your router and to an electrical outlet. Power off all devices, then power on each device in this order: modem, router, and then computer.

After installing the SIM card into my router, how do I know if the subscription phone service is operational on my router? Once a valid phone subscription SIM card is installed, the Phone LED will light up blue. You will also receive a dial tone on the connected phone. Can I have two home phone lines? Yes. You must activate a second line of service through Customer Care by calling 1-800-937-8997. You will receive a second SIM card to be installed in your T-Mobile Router. Separate charges apply. How do I know if security is enabled on my router? A Security LED at the top of your router will glow green when encryption is enabled. This LED will glow amber during the pairing process (see your Wi-Fi enabled mobile phone’s Get Started poster for details on activating security with your mobile phone). Where can I find additional information about security? Chapter 4 of the User Guide contains additional information that is not found on this poster. The User Guide is a PDF file and is located on the CD that came with your T-Mobile Router. Although the Setup Wizard is PC only, the other files on the CD are accessible by all platforms (e.g. Mac®, Linux).
