for all of you with any cing contacts will the cing 8800 have UMA like the tmo is rumored to have? from what I can tell tmo is the only us carrier with uma ready.

This is a quote from an article at:New Year Won't Stop Research In Motion - Forbes.com
In addition to the existing multimedia and Internet applications offered on the BlackBerry devices, Sanderson expects the integration of the global positioning system, on the Indigo, slated to launch in February, will take the product to new heights.

Cingular skipped UMA for IMS. Look for a future BlackBerry device to have IMS support, but not the 8800. Cingular should have IMS implemented sometime in 2008 (unless target dates have been moved up). I think we can expect IMS compatibility on a BlackBerry within 18 months (but that's just speculation). I do know that RIM is working on this now.

Thanks for the very good news that Cingular will be getting it.

So the 8800 on cing with wifi will not be able to get any cell calls while the tmo one will? This is a huge negative for the 8800 on cingular and a huge positive for tmo.

I did. The right one wasn't there so a joke would do. Why don't you provide us a more appropriate link?

Not around here. T-Mo coverage is so poor you have to go outside to use it. It show excellent on their map at both my house and business but you are lucky to get a bar on the meter. This is a huge negative for T-Mo.

yea and in both those places don't you have wifi? That's my point, the only place tmo signal is bad for me is in my house, where I have wifi so there I'd use UMA, problem solved. Plus on wifi I'd have ultra fast browser access so I don't mind using it whereever I could even if tmo signal is great. If I switch to wifi on cingular I just shut off my cell phone which is a bad thing.

I think this is premature speculation, as we have not seen any devices, nor has the final configuration been published.

Rumors run rampart when there is nothing else to rely on.

Cheers..........

Speculation based on facts however. As every news post I can dig up mentions cingular not going with uma and using IMS instead. the 8800 will no way support IMS. If it supports UMA then that leaves tmo (who by every news post is going with uma) to implement it for the 8800. There is no third choice for cingular to surprise us with which means their 8800 will simply have a wifi card as my laptop does. And when active the cell network will have to be down.

I'm on cingular now cause they beat tmo for me with coverage. But I think tmo + uma on 8800 will win a lot of that deciding factor stuff for people over cingular 8800 + no cell service when on wifi.

You bring up a few valid points which I certainly agree with if indeed this is the configuration that appears in the final product which seems likely at this late date.
Kudos for digging up more than I have in your research. Despite the constant searching on my part I missed this info you have presented.
Nice work!

Cheers ...
