Great news for T-Mobile customers in the United States. According to GigaOM, T-Mobile US is now offering a Free Wi-Fi Calling feature for customers where calls made over Wi-Fi will no longer deduct minutes. Here are the details from the confirmation email:
“T-Mobile is excited to expand our Wi-Fi Calling feature, a unique and valuable service T-Mobile has been offering customers for over three years. Starting today, T-Mobile customers can add Free Wi-Fi Calling to their rate plan – at no additional charge – to place calls over Wi-Fi without deducting from their allotment of minutes. This new feature is available at T-Mobile retail stores to all customers on Even More and Even More Plus Postpaid rate plans who have Wi-Fi Calling capable handsets.”
I called in to make sure this feature was also available for BlackBerry smartphones and the rep I spoke with said as long as it is WiFi/UMA enabled, the feature should be available but needs to be manually added to rate plans. If WiFi calling is something you’ve been interested in (especially now that it’s free) be sure to log in to the T-Mobile site or call a rep to have it added.
Let us know in the comments if you’re able to get Free Wi-Fi Calling enabled!
