Default If I'm connected to WIFI, am I being billed for minutes while on the phone?

simple enough question.. I'm just about over my minutes and had always been curious about this.

Yes you will, unless you have subscribed to T-Mobile's HotSpot@Home service.

No you won't. Might be billed for data but not minutes.

IIRC TMO's UMA service bills you for UMA minutes unless you pay for the @home package (mentioned above). I'm assuming that "while on the phone" means a voice call and not browsing or other data services.
