    Wi-Fi that great on AT&T (therefore no UMA available)?

    With an 8820 on AT&T network, is there really that much of an advantage having Wi-Fi when you can't use UMA (which you could use on T-mobile)?

    Even if you put an 8820 on t-mobile, you would still need the settings and OS functions loaded onto the phone.

    Well first and foremost, UMA won't be on Cingular, even though they had a hand in ratifying the standard specs with the 3GPP, but ATT is going the IMS route or IP Multimedia Subsystem which has better SIP compatibility. Currently I think they're already using the IMS subsystem for their video sharing for MediaNet like Sprint TV . I guess it's only a matter of time, since Sprint is planning IMS based solutions for enterprise and corporate businesses.

    Either way, your wifi for ATT is going to be for wireless local access for internet only... for the time being ;-)
