Yes, as long as you call a number in the US. If you call a number outside the US you will get billed for an international call. It's just as if you're phone were physically located in the US. Great system!

Eventhough gprs coverage was spotty i was able to send emails using wifi (the wifi indicator on screen was on showing I was connected while only having gsm coverage) I called tmo to ask about the phone calls but i cant seem to get a definitive answer. so we'll see. I let you know when i get my bill.
If your device had a wifi connection but showed anything but UMA (such as GSM or GPRS/EDGE/gprs/edge) then your data was over the wifi and the calls were over GSM. You're going to get billed for the calls unless you show "UMA" on the device.
