Handoff to my office WiFi via UMA?

by hyunc53    Jun 15, 2009, 4:09 PM

I am wondering if any of you techie guys can answer this question. I have a wireless network at the office and I have set my BB to connect to the network. I am enjoying the WiFi but my GSM signal is terrible here.

I noticed that my phone displays "UMA" where it normally displays "EDGE" when I am outside. Does this mean that when I am within my WiFi range, I am using the UMA protocol to connect my voice calls? Does this explain the fact that I am able to connect my phone?

I was seriously thinking about abandoning T-Mobile, but if the above is true, then I don't need to do that. Does anyone have enough knowledge ob this subject?

Thank you.
