T-Mobile now allows free Wi-Fi calling

submitted on May 17, 2011 by YanBz in "Stores / Merchants"
T-Mobile customers with Wi-Fi calling capable handsets (all Android phones) can add Free Wi-Fi Calling to their rate plan at no additional charge. Calling via Wi-Fi doesn't use up your plan minutes and so can be a big money saver.

Finally I have a really good reason to ditch my home phone number! Smile

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 am not 100% sure but I don't think you can just flip a switch and start using WiFi for all your calls. As far as I understand you do need an app. I think Google Voice supports IP calling, Skype does too.

    It requires the Smart WiFi program that comes preloaded on the Android phones, configured for T-Mobile. The app runs automatically if Wi-Fi is on and connected.


    Here is how to configure it.
