    Hey All,

    Thanks for your help ahead of time....I have Tmobile and LOVE the UMA feature...so ive been educated on how it all works on another post but I have another question.

    I always have a fantastic UMA/COX HSI signal from my brand new linksys router. However all 3 of my phones 2 8900's and 1 8320 will regularly revert to edge even though my router is screaming loud and when I go to my connections and it shows Wi-Fi Preferred.

    Its frustrating because I want to be able to utilize this UMA calling/data feature as it provides me a better connection in my home.
    I love TMOBILE so far and I cancelled my home phone since I have the 9.99 hotspot calling package.
    Why wont my phones stay on the stronger WI FI signal ?

    Too many factors in this equation... could be the phone is running low on memory... could be the router has been up too long and needs a power down and restart... any number of reasons... but it just in not getting the proper protocol information back from the router to say that it's up and running... that's why at least once a month I pull the power and let everything rest for a few minutes and then reload everything fresh... at least that's my take.

    You can also try to modify the following setting:

    Manage Connections > Mobile Network Options > Connection Preference = WiFi Preferred

    Are you using the T-mobile branded router or just a regular Linksys router?

    I'm using the WRT54GS as I already had it and didn't want to buy another one from T-mobile. I found this thread a little while back and went through the steps in it and have found the UMA in my house is much better and doesn't drop as much as it did before I did this. Maybe give it a shot and see how it helps!
