    I've searched the forums and all I get are t-mobile references. I'm asking this because I usually don't get good service at my house and yesterday my bother calls while I'm browsing the web on wifi, and he came in clear as day.

    Thanks for any answers.

    The bold is UMA capable, but is a carrier only option in which none have opted to have the UMA feature allowable on their networks.

    Reason why is that the bold is usullay used as a 3G and 2G phone which UMA will interfere with GSM or basically you won't have 3G and that is why the bold is never programed for UMA as i wished it did cause i want Rogers TalkSpot...

    The 8900 is UMA supported and abotu 7-8 more phones are for Rogers UMA talkspot service which = you can talk over your Internet Connection for FREE.

    Yea, basically UMA and 3G hardware don't play well together. Here is an interesting read: BlackBerry - Wifi PDA - Wi-Fi Enabled BlackBerry Smartphones - Wireless Networking
