T-Mobile is now offering free calls over Wi-Fi with compatible phones. In the past, T-Mobile has counted Wi-Fi calls against your allotted minutes, but the company has quietly changed that policy. This new change applies to any customers on the Even more or Even More Plus postpaid rate planes who have Wi-Fi calling capable phones. GigaOM got a statement from Kineto Wireless (the company that makes UMA-based systems) that confirms the rumors:
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.
