Wi-Fi Calling

mim_mobile

I understand it has replaced UMA however some handsets (i presume BlackBerry) still support UMA.

 

I guess my main questions are

1 - Is Wi-Fi calling an App - what's the technology if it isn't UMA

2 - With Wi-Fi calling (without UMA) Will the call drop if switching between Wi-Fi and cellular and vice versa.

 

The Wi-Fi Calling webpage contains the following small print "Except for UMA devices, device will not transition between Wi-Fi and the wireless network."

 

It leads me to believe there is no seamless hand over to the cellular network

 

The Nokia Lumia 512 - offers 3 settings - Wi-Fi preferred, Cellular Preferred and Wi-Fi Only.  Is there any hand over in the Wi-Fi preferred or Cellular preferred scenario - will the call drop if a Wi-Fi preferred call looses Wi-Fi but there is cellular coverage available ?

 

One last related question - Does T-Mobile offer public Wi-Fi like AT&T ?

 

Thanks for you help.
