Take T-Mobile, for instance.
They allow UMA on their WiFi enabled BlackBerry devices which allows phone calls over WiFi.
This is a FANTASTIC benefit for the end user, and one I do wish I could have.
(I'm not about to switch to T-Mobile for it though.)

If Verizon offered UMA... then I'd be upset over lack of WiFi on the Tour.
For me, UMA is really the only reason I'd want WiFi on a phone.
