I happen to like T-Mobile and I appreciate the fact that UMA is offered, but I don't agree that the price of unlimited calling on UMA should be $10 extra per month, that's all I'm saying. It's not like I'm going to picket in front of T-Mobile or anything.
They are providing the infrastructure to connect the call to your number over the internet which is no freer than tower equipment is. Would you feel better if they only allowed UMA at Tmobile hotspots? Then, by your reasoning, it would be legitimately a minute charge as it is for regular cell calls.
But they offer it over any internet connection. That you choose to use your wifi equipment and provider to use UMA is your choice not theirs. They're not forcing you to do that. If you bought a cell signal repeater should those calls be unlimited since they're going through your equipment at the connection point just like UMA calls are?
