stupid question, but what does every1 mean by "UMA" ? if you don't have h@h, and you get a call while you're at home surfing the net on your wifi connection (on the bb of course), will the phone auto-switch to edge so you can receive the call ?
please search, UMA has been discussed to death on BBF in all the sub-forums - there are tons and tons of threads with all the info you need.
