Default UMA/Wifi Bahamas

Please Login to Remove!


I am traveling to the Bahamas tomorrow for 4 days. I have a 8900 and wireless accounts with both tmobile and rogers.

Will I be able to tap into the wifi connection where I am going and make free calls back to the Canada and the US through UMA?

Thanks very much!

Theoretically, it should work. But things like the broadband connection quality, router model, router OS, and router settings can cause problems.
