    Forgive me if this has been covered before but I am curious.

    I had read somewhere that there is a way to make phone calls via the blackberry data service, hence, free phone calls with out using your minutes. I know that through some internet providers on the net you can make internet phone calls. It seems to me that since the BB uses the internet that this could be possible.

    anyone know or heard of anything?

    Its called UMA calling and is available only with Tmo right now. The devices that it works with are 8320 and 8120.

    Do a search for "UMA" and you'll find thousands of threads discussing that.

    Perhaps you are referring to UMA calling? In which case it is only available on models with wifi and carriers that offer UMA calling such as Tmobile and the 8320, 8820, and 8120 models. Also, it is not free. Unless you have the hotspot plan that provides unlimited mins over uma, mins will be deducted from your voice plan.
