    wifi

    Advertisement



    I have the 8320 but don't have a data plan.. so I'm wondering how do I know when I am using wifi and when I am not because i do not want to get charged for using the internet. The wifi icon is always on the top right side and I havent seen it change colors or anything so I dont know when I'm using it and when I'm not. And also- does the data services need to be on for wifi to work? Thanks so much!

    If you look at it that way, we are paying for the so called "free wifi calling".

    The wifi calling will work (it is known as UMA) without a data plan but he is talking about the internet. The UMA is not "free wifi calling". It is VOIP calling from a cell phone which if you have the added Talk Forever@mobile option added to your plan gives you unlimited minutes for UMA calls otherwise it comes out of your regular minutes.

    THis is actually not ture, If you have WIFI, you can browse the net or make calls on WIFI with out a data plan, With TMO there is an BB Enabler that allows you enough Data to be able to send MMS, this is at no cost other then the MMS. It also alows you to get to T-zones. Once you have the browser ICON, you can browse anywhere using the browser over WIFI. With out a data plan.

    This is correct except that UMA is not true VoIP. it is simalar but is not braded the same, T-mobile Reps are not even supposed to mention VoIP. All the billing info is quite right.
