    Hot spot @ home is a service for unlimited calling over wifi, also know as UMA calling, which the G1 does not support. It has been argued that it is a harware issue, but others say it is a software issue. I personaly believe it is software, either way the G1 at this point will not do it. Not to say that WiFi would be a waste as you can surf the internet over WiFi and it is faster than 3G. Just enable WiFi under settings connect and surf. If your network has a password or wep encryption you will need to input that into settings the phone will remember them and log you in automaticly when you are at home.
