T-Mobile today announced the T-Mobile Personal CellSpot. The announcement came at T-Mobile's Un-carrier 7 event in San Francisco. The theme of the event was Wifi and this new accessory from T-Mobile will put a "cell tower" directly into your living room.

The T-Mobile Personal CellSpot will be available to customers with just a $25 deposit. Those who are prepaid customers can instead grab the CellSpot for just $99 without a deposit. There will be no additional cost, nor hassle. Users simple just need to plug it in and use it. The CellSpot will act as a T-Mobile tower in your house, improving coverage thanks to Wifi tech.

Only you will be able to use the CellSpot for calls and texts, so rest assured it won't be opened up for every T-Mobile customer that happens to be nearby. It's worth noting that it also works as a regular router for all Wifi-enabled devices in your home.

Anyone out there interesting in improving their T-Mobile coverage with the CellSpot?
