T-Mobile Looking to Enable Wi-Fi Calling on WP7February 18, 2011 No Comments
T-mobile has been toutng their numbers for their Wi-Fi calling application. They have '5 million' of its customers using the service. Wi-Fi calling is a feature that switches your conversation to Wi-Fi if you hit a hotspot. It works seamlessly during your call and you dont end up wasting those precious anytime minutes.
Well now we have word that they are working on bringing that feature to its Windows Phone 7 users.
'Lonn said T-Mobile expects to offer its Wi-Fi Calling app on all of its Android phones this year, and is working to move the service onto its Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) Windows Phone 7 devices at some point in the future. He said T-Mobile also hopes to work with Kineto to refine the service so that users won't have to actively manage the app via their handsets–instead, the carrier is working toward a version of the service that would automatically route users' calls over suitable Wi-Fi access points. Lonn said such a function would require cooperation among T-Mobile, Kineto and T-Mobile's handsets suppliers.'
