    so ummm lack of UMA????

    No UMA!!! i'm upset but love the phone. Is/will there be a way to enable this ever?

    i spent hours on the phone with rogers today getting a credit because i told them they sold it to me as a talk spot compatible phone. btw i did get it so if your looking for a little cred i'm sure you can get it too!

    Only the t-mobile version of the blackberry has UMA.

    Rogers and AT&T only has WiFi for Browsing.

    Which is why t-mobile kicks ass sorry

    The phones are capable so they should get it going. I hope in the first software update.

    UMA has nothing to do with 2G or 3G. You can completely turn off the mobile network and it will function. AT&T does not do UMA. I have no idea about Rogers.

    When I tried this I couldn't make it work. I'll give Rogers a call and reactivate my talkspot and try again though. Does anyone have a detailed guide on this I feel like it can't be that simple because I couldn't get it to switch to Uma. Perhaps its my router?

    I think only t-mobile does UMA

    also if anything go to options and select mobile network if you have the optionchange it from mobile network preferred to wifi preferred and see if that works

    if it doesnt then t-mobile is only one that does UMA

    it has now been confirmed that rogers just have to push out a file to make it work. we're all waiting for that day but who knows if it will ever come. in the mean time their are rumors of ppl working on injecting that file themselves. however i have not heard about anyone doing it successfully.


    Recieved an exerpt from the 9700 training at rogers today from my friend in BB tech support there.

    " UMA - Limited support for Wi-Fi UMA exclusive to Rogers/Linksys router branded and Rogers ISP. " (rogers training 9700 slides)

    This is by far the most conflicting info i have seen with this phone. it just seems like i hear different things from every person i talk to. well i am going to try to go get one of there routers tomorrow and test it out.

    i'll let you all know when it fails to work.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    well it didn't happen the next day like i promised but i did go buy that 8 year old router from rogers. suprise suprise it still wouldn't work. the issues surrounding uma on the 9700 have nothing to do with the device but more to do with training.

    if they didn't want it to have uma they never should have said it did. and if they wanted to keep customers happy they should have trained their staff to say it doesn't have uma rather than make me hunt around the city looking for a dealer with a a router i had when i was 14.
