    Hi, sorry if this has already been answered, i can't seem to get a clear answer on this one...
    when im at home with my 8900, with my wifi off, im on the EDGE network. If i turn wifi on, it changes to UMA. which one of these is better? should i leave my BB wifi on when im at home so i can use UMA or is edge usually clearer? im talking only about voice calls here, not data...

    and on that topic, in option --> mobile network --> should my connection preference be set to wifi preferred or mobile preferred?

    thanks, i'm really bad at this whole blackberry thing

    Wifi is quicker than EDGE... and technically UMA will be clearer when using EDGE to talk.

    I prefer to have the Mobile Network set to Wi-Fi Preferred... it's naturally going to be quicker and if it's not there it will automajically go to your mobile network.

    And on UMA you can send a receive data like BBM with a headset.
