Email & Calls over Wi-Fi?

I have zero AT&T reception at my house. Any idea if Blackberry OS 6 supports BES email over Wi-Fi? What about inbound/outbound calls over Wi-Fi?

Do u have absolutely no reception, or just low reception?
Supposingly the BB Torch gets two bars more reception than other phones in the same area.

I have zero reception - it was great watching the AT&T Uverse tech have to walk down the street to get cell coverage when they set up our cable service. I'm not interested in their new microcell either. Thanks.

I suggest you drop sh***y a$$ AT&T and go with some carrier that you actually get service with. Why pay $100 a month for something you can't even use at your home?

BES will work over wifi, that is you will be able to get emails, send BBMs, and browse the web.

Calls will not work through wifi because AT&T doesn't support UMA. T-Mobile is the only carrier that supports UMA, which allows you to place/receive calls and send/receive SMS and MMS.

Hope this helps.
