One of the annoying parts for T-Mobile customers who picked up the sweet BlackBerry Bold 9900 was the lack of UMA Wi-Fi calling. It led to a few thinking that T-Mobile was discontinuing the service. According to T-Mobile (confirmed by CIO.com) that is not the case. T-Mobile plans on putting out a maintenance release for the Bold 9900 in November 2011 to enable Wi-Fi Calling functionality.
Here is what T-Mobile’s rep had to say:
A maintenance release from RIM is expected for the T-Mobile BlackBerry Bold 9900 in November 2011. That update will include Wi-Fi Calling functionality. With the update, the Bold 9900 will have Wi-Fi Calling performance and benefits similar to T-Mobile’s other Wi-Fi Calling-enabled BlackBerry devices.
Anybody else waiting for the update?
