Default TMO UMA and E911

Please Login to Remove!

Maybe this is old news, but my search attempts didn't find discussion of it.

Yesterday, while looking at my Profile on the My T-Mobile site, I noticed they had added a new tab in the Profile for a E911 home location.

I assume that this is in preparation for the UMA / T-Mobile @ Home service rollout, and is intended to satisfy compliance for the FCC VoIP E911 rules.

Since I'm not in Seattle, nor on UMA, the E911 Profile tab would not accept any information for my account.

No, I think UMA is the service that allows it to also call over wifi.

With the rumor of the T-Mobile Hotspot @Home service coming out on 6/27 I hope there will be a nice WiFi-enabled BlackBerry that follows shortly after (cough... 8320... cough)
