Seeing lowercase case uma is normal because you don't have a data plan. It would be uppercase if you did. UMA/uma just means you can use a wifi connection to make/receive phone calls (comes out of your minutes unless you have an additional plan).
Furthermore, you're seeing uma when you switch on wifi because it sounds like your connection settings are set to wifi-preferred. To check your settings, go to: Manage Connections>Mobile Network Options>Connection preference.
You should be ok with using wifi; but can check with your carrier just to double check things.
