UMA seems to work better on the 8900 than the 83xx
Not sure if anyone else thinks this, but I've been overseas this past week and am using UMA a fair amount. I have to say that it seems to work quite a bit better than on my previous 8320. On the 8320 I would get frequent call drops, and even when I didn't calls would often be "choppy" sounding. I'm wondering if perhaps UMA is pretty CPU intensive and so with the faster processor in the 8900 there is less of a CPU burden. Anyway, just a guess...but I'm a much happier UMA user on the 8900.

i dont have t-mo coverage at my house and have used UMA for well over a year on my old 8320 and my new 8900, both work perfectly and i have never had issues, UNTIL NOW! My motorola H15 headset i just bought has issues with my 8900 when i am using UMA, i even thought the original headset was defective so i bought another and it has the same issue. i have this issue with both the shipping 8900 software and the current release for the 8900. It works fine with my old motorola H700 though but that has no noise cancellation so i cant use that in most environments. hopefully this gets fixed in a future software update for the 8900.

I had to change firmwares on my router when I got the 8900. It worked fine with my 8320 but the 8900 threw it for a loop. I figured I was good to go with the Linksys WRT54GS (w/latest Linksys firmware.) However, multiple devices didn't like to stay connected when the 8900 was connected. I had to reboot the router multiple times a day. Went to dd-wrt on it and all has been fine since. There's definitely something different about the UMA on the 8900.

Yea, I've noticed that UMA is much more stable with the 8900 compare to my 8320. I so glad I upgraded.
