Default UMA Missing on Bold?

Please Login to Remove!

Has anyone got UMA working on a Bold? It doesn't appear in the network diagnostics page any more.

True, I can't seem to get UMA working on Orange UK. With both 3G & WiFi on it doesn't change to UMA.

There was rumor that UMA woldnt be on the Rogers release. Could that be the case on all the Bolds? Have you asked orange if the Bold is a UMA supported device?

I'll give them a call. There is no mention of UMA in any of the Orange UK Bold's documentation.

Personally I found the UMA functionality on Orange UK with my 8820 was not very good - calls were dropped, some apps never worked.

Yes it was Orange UK, sorry I should have said. On all the Bold's documentation it mentions UMA, or at least I think it did. Personally I found it useful, when out of orange's range. Lately though, it has become a tad unreliable.

UMA on my 8320 was fine, when i was using Sky Broadband. - but i couldnt get the free call add-on's as it wasnt orange broadband.

when i did use orange broadband (a whole 3 days) - it was aweful.
