It doesn't really work on other phones that well anyways...at least the transfer from UMA to the mobile network doesn't.

I drop calls regularly trying to let the phone handle that transition. It is so bad that on my 8220 I have turned off the Wifi, just as I did on my 8820, and 8320. It is VERY nice when STAYING within a particular WIFI hotspot, but upon leaving, it is very likely that the call I am on will drop.

even if it was on the original carriers network you wouldnt have UMA as the bold does not have UMA...
