    Hi, sorry if this has been asked before. Why is it that Orange can have uma in UK but Vodafone can't. Seeming as vodafoe are supposed to be biggest carrier in uk, this does seem a bit strange. Any reason? Thanks

    You said it. They are the biggest carrier in the UK. They have faith in their network

    Lol, it should work, UMA should recognize your WI-FI, its just because you dont have good service for the actual network.

    Yep, it is as simple as that. Add a connection to your Wi-Fi network. The phone will reach over your Wi-Fi and establish UMA and BIS connections. Same goes for almost any public Wi-Fi hotspot, except the few that block the IPSec protocol used by UMA.

    If you are tech savvy, go into your Wi-Fi router settings and set the beacon interval down to 50. This isn't necessary, but you'll get a much more solid UMA connection.
