A colleague of mine let me know that T-Mobile now offers FREE WiFi calling from your Blackberry. (Thanks Dane)
Previously, they offered the [email protected] and Unlimited HotSpot Calling service for $10-20/month, but now it is supposed to be free to all T-mo subscribers. Of course, you will need a “HotSpot” enabled phone (i.e. WiFi BlackBerry devices).
You just need to enable the WiFi radio on your BB and connect to a WiFi network. You should “UMA” on the top of the screen. When this is the case, the signal indicator turns to pink dots, instead of white bars.
When you are connected on WiFi, you won’t be using any of your mobile plan’s minutes, which is very handy when traveling internationally. Also, this is a great option if you experience bad signal coverage at home or at work,
As I don’t have a T-mo BB with WiFi, I can’t confirm that ANY T-mo user can use the WiFi calling for free. Can anyone verify this?
