    Note that there are a number of settings that you should probably modify on your router to maximize the stability/reliability of your UMA connection. Just do a google search for "t-mobile UMA router settings"

    On a T-Mobile phone that has Wi-Fi and UMA the phone will actually connect straight to TMo's servers for Wi-Fi calling, it uses the WiFi signal to place the calls v. the EDGE/3G radio. So basically in large buildings, apartments, Churches, remote housing basically anywhere there is an open WiFi signal you get "land line quality" phone calls from your wireless device. And for an extra 9.99 per month those phone calls made over UMA don't subtract from your minuet pool. And some people have claimed they can call from over seas back to the states for free over UMA.

    I prefer LinkSys routers... they seem to be more reliable and are much better built than any other maker... just my 2 cents on the subject.

    i have no issue without alot of routers but will definitly suggestion as the prior person had for you to change the router settings. if you have a home router youll be using alot for uma set it up correct and your call will be alot better and your wont have issues with dropped calls or service issues. good luck

    I do UMA with my 9700 over my Apple Airport Extreme Dual band G/N .It's supposed to work without any fuss but I've found that to be inaccurate. I had to reserve a static IP for my 9700 and make sure to forward port 4101 for both TCP and UDP to the reserved IP set to the 9700. After doing that the connection is solid with no drops or any other problems.

    Default Port 4101

    What does the Blackberry use port 4101 for?

    Is this the same port that Blackberry Professional Software uses for interfacing with Exchange?

    I'm trying to put all the pieces together.

    Thanks,

    I've never had to forward any ports in order for UMA to work. I've used a linksys with native linksys firmware as well as now running it with DD-WRT firmware (which is far more functional than the linksys firmware). I'd definitely recommend DD-WRT for anyone who wants more features and control.

    yes it is a great feature and only $10 a month for free minutes when at home? you cant beat that. But i've also heard rumors that the service will be discontinued much like they did to the myfaves plan so lets hope they don't
