T-Mobile Android Users Get Free WiFi Calling

If you’re on T-Mobile and have an Android device, chances are you know all about Smart Wi-Fi, an application allows you to make calls on via WiFi. T-Mobile’s Smart WiFi app comes pre-installed on Android phones that support UMA (Unlicensed Mobile Access). Previously, making use of this feature cost extra and those WiFi calls counted towards your minutes. However, T-Mobile today confirmed to GigaOm that customers with compatible phones and subscriptions to its Even More or Even More Plus plans will now be allowed to make calls over WiFi for free.

"T-Mobile is excited to expand our Wi-Fi Calling feature, a unique and valuable service T-Mobile has been offering customers for over three years. Starting today, T-Mobile customers can add Free Wi-Fi Calling to their rate plan – at no additional charge – to place calls over Wi-Fi without deducting from their allotment of minutes. This new feature is available at T-Mobile retail stores to all customers on Even More and Even More Plus Postpaid rate plans who have Wi-Fi Calling capable handsets."
