    I wasn't aware that Froyo had any sort of provisions for handling UMA; I specifically asked this question of the Android team and of HTC employees while at Google I/O in May and they indicated that there was no real progress in that area. That is why the Android UMA client that T-Mobile is including as part of the update has a 7 meg shared library in the WiFi calling APK from Kineto to do the UMA encapsulation.

    I don't know what the purpose of that statement is from T-Mobile is, but it's clear that an update was pushed to some devices that included the Kineto application.

    The TMO rep I spoke with yesterday (while switching my 8900 to the G2) said he heard of a closed beta on the tmo forums and that wifi calliing would be coming very soon. I love the G2 its much more exciting than my past BBs. But until they get wifi or UMA calling on it ill still be using my home phone at home and the BB out at the campground.

    Really? TMO is? Not Verizon, ATT, and Sprint with their constant crap? This is the first time TMO has "almost dropped the ball" -- ATT, Verizon, and Sprint drop the ball every other weekend.

    Relax. Source code was released today and Tethering will be on the way as well. Developers will be on that source code pronto. T-Mobile isn't AT&T and Android isn't Apple for sure. There WILL be a rootable G2 coming soon. Ok developers, get on that... I don't understand your frustration with T-Mo. They have to be the most "forward thinking" carrier I can think of. With Blackberry's, they are still the only one supporting UMA, they have calling plans with no contract, low price plans (kids for free until 2012), not to mention HSPA+ and the fastest 3G right now. What can be frustrating about those...??
