    Hi, all.

    This evening I decided to really abuse UMA on a Rogers Wireless Torch. I connected to the Talkspot Service and, once I had the UMA notification at the top of my Torch screen (about 30 minutes later) – I was ready to play.

    I turned off the GSM radio (I turned the feature for wireless network to “WiFi Only” from “WiFi preferred”.

    – SMS: Able to send and receive fine

    – BBM: Works exactly as normal.

    – Voice: Able to place and recieve calls just fine.

    – Browsing: Same. Works as expected.

    I was a little surprised about the SMS service working – it makes sense but I expected it to fail.

    Hope this helps any others.


    PS: The price for this add-on for Nation-wide calling in Canada is $15/month. Rogers will try and ship a “voice optimised” router to you but my Cisco setup seems happy enough to carry the traffic. I am now going back through some of my recent bills to see if “free long distance” and no wireless minutes actually saves me $15.
