Good news coming from a T-Mobile representative about an excellent feature that’s now available to their customers with devices that support the functionality. Apparently, without much fanfare, T-Mobile is allowing their customers to make free unlimited Wi-Fi calls at no additional cost. Additionally, the time used will not go against their monthly allotted minutes. Here is exactly the statement that was issued by the representative:
“T-Mobile is excited to expand our Wi-Fi Calling feature, a unique and valuable service T-Mobile has been offering customers for over three years. Starting today, T-Mobile customers can add Free Wi-Fi Calling to their rate plan – at no additional charge – to place calls over Wi-Fi without deducting from their allotment of minutes. This new feature is available at T-Mobile retail stores to all customers on Even More and Even More Plus Postpaid rate plans who have Wi-Fi Calling capable handsets.”
According to GigaOm, “the free calling is applicable to the Android phones that have the Smart Wi-Fi app pre-installed and pre-configured for T-Mobile.” Additionally, the mobile phones have to support UMA.
So go ahead and activate this new feature and let us know how much you love it. Now if we can only get the other carriers on board!
