Default No H@H but WiFi calling?

Please Login to Remove!

Just tried it,

disabled my TMO network and connected to my Netgear WGT624v3 - I can call any number I want.

The question is - how is TMO figuring if that was a data call (which is free with my plan), or a voice call (which is not free).

And secondly - why do you need a H@H plan, when you can call WIFI regardless...?

Sorry, if this was answered, I didn't really know what to search for.

If you have H@H then minutes used on UMA are not charged against your minute plan. If you don't have H@H then the minutes are deducted from your minute plan. Either way you can make calls using UMA.

I also want to add that if you have H@H, you can use the T-mobile's HotSpots at Starbucks and few other locations that has it and use voice and data.

But if you don't have it, than the only thing you can use is voice.
