has anyone tried to setup there android to do wi-fi calling like you can do with the blackberry when your out of service area throw rogers network ?
The Wifi Calling or UMA service is currently not available for the Android platform. Currently only certain Blackberry models and 1-2 Nokia cellphones can use Wifi-Calling.
for some reason i was under the impression the nokia n95-8 was a UMA device but apparently it's not. seems like only blackberries.
this quote from the white papers is quite misleading, inferring all one would need is a capable handset, and add the service to the account, which is probably not the case.
UMA-enabled dual mode handsets (with GSM and Wi-Fi radios). A broad array of handsets from the major device manufacturers, including most current BlackBerry®device models, are dual mode and support UMA.
i did buy the HTC evo 3D and not looking back thank god they had a android phone with wi fi calling , plus messaging and also pic messaging, just tryed it all now, calls are super clear as well. The HTC put the samsung captivate to rest and im not looking back but i do like some features on the samsung more then the htc but i can live with out it. ITS WORTH BUYING THIS PHONE I GIVE IT FROM 1 TO 10 A 8.5 rating , I buy alot of phone and so far this is the best android phone i have ever had.
hi Pauly, i was referring to the quote from the white papers. just because there is a broad range of handsets that have GSM and wifi radios, that support UMA, doesn't mean they will work with rogers. Maybe it's just me?
