    UMA Wifi Calling even without @Home?

    Advertisement



    I just made my first calls on my 8320 and I think the calls went through wifi instead of cell even though I'm not subscribed to @home... Is this how it works, it just counts as minutes for me and not for @home users?

    The ringing sounded different and it clicked when it connected the call. When I turned off wifi and forced it to use the EDGE network it sounded like my pearl.


    Any ideas?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~that actually sounds like a good possibility, I'm sure it does work like that, because it increased your signal

    Well they say it will use ur min if u don't have h@home,but will enhance signal strength if you have good wifi.

    I just confirmed that I can make calls just on Wifi by turning off mobile EDGE and just using my router. Pretty cool in case I can't get a signal somewhere. I thought I would have to pay to even use this feature. I'm fine with it just counting minutes.

    Any idea if this is the way it is supposed to be or is it some fluke that will be fixed in the 4.3 update?

    This is actually a feature of the UMA capable phones. Even if you don't subscribe to @home feature you'll be able to use wifi to make/receive calls but they'll just come out of your bucket of minutes. It's been confirmed on other sites that if you have the My Fav plans and you make/recieve calls using wifi they are FREE calls from/to your favs.

    BTW I don't have h@h or hotspot but I am posting using my bb at a hotspot location with EDGE off, is that by design? I thought hotspots were pay services ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    If you subscribe to My Faves then Yes, the favs you call are free on GSM (non-wifi).

    Are you at a Tmobile hotspot?

    Guys dont know if this helps but, I had my 8320 Since monday. I did not install simcard and added router setting Linksys wrt54gx2 and was able to surf and no uma..Maybe some can test this with a non activated number or simcard...
