    I was wondering if the T-Mobile UMA @home add on service allows for receiving/ sending SMS text messages. Also would data work? Email? what about certain apps that require data?

    I'm asking because while at work, there is no service what so ever unless the phone is by a window. I've been thinking about jumping over to Tmobile which is why I'm inquiring.

    Thank you in advanced.

    you don't need @home.
    UMA on any wireless network will make/receive calls, emails, browse...ect.
    Anything you can do on EDGE network, you can do on UMA.
    Only thing the @home does, is your minutes are not pulled from your monthly bucket, instead unlimited while on @home.
    Just get the phone, connect on to the wireless network and you good to go.

    Thank you for clarifying that.

    Does anyone know if UMA only allows voice? Does it still allow SMS and BIS?

    i heard that if u dont have unlimited hotspot calling when u use UMA at home or wherever, when you call long distance with UMA, the minutes are pulled from your regular local voice minutes...is this true?

    and what if i can unlimited evening and weekends and i use UMA during this time, so i wont get charged right?

    You heard right. If your phone supports UMA, it will make UMA calls over available Wifi networks. Even UMA calls will burn whenever/off-peak minutes unless you have TMo's unlimited HotSpot calling option.

    BBM PIN messaging is free i believe, so long as you have a data plan.
