T-Mobile offers Android users and others free WiFi calling

If you are a T-Mobile user who has an Android smartphone and like to use WiFi calling some good news has surfaced today. T-Mobile has finally offered users of Android smartphones, and other devices free WiFi calling. It's really about time since WiFi calls should have never counted against your minutes since the calls were going through your WiFi bandwidth at home or in the office. T-Mobile has now fixed that issue for users.

Rooted NOOKcolor Tablet gets Bluetooth, can make calls

There's a great line in the movie Apollo 13 where Gene Kranz, the flight director of the mission, says "I don't care what it's designed to do, I care what it CAN do!" That couldn't be more true for the Barnes and Noble NOOKcolor eBook reader which is turning into a pretty adaptable Android tablet. The latest hack comes from CM7 Developer "Kmoobs" who managed to bring bluetooth capability to it through CM7 Nightly for Encore which takes advantage of the hidden bluetooth capability of the NookColor's WiFi chip. The capability is turned off in the software and CM7 Nightly for Encore re-enables it.

Kineto Holding WiFi Calling Contest, You Could Win an Android Phone

The name Kineto may not seem all that familiar, but now that WiFi Calling is a go for the T-Mobile G2, it's a name that you'll probably hear more of in the future. It's the company that's responsible for bringing WiFi Calling to the device, after all. In any event, it looks like they're doing pretty well for themselves, and so they're sharing in their good fortune by going forward with a contest that could see a lucky winner winning a high-end Android phone.

T-Mobile Responds to G2 Tethering and WiFi Calling OTA Update

We know people who have gotten the OTA update for their G2’s enabling WiFi Calling and Tethering. However, it seems T-Mobile is not ready to comment, if the push was a mistake, or premature. T-Mobile provided an official response to Phonescoop detailing their stance on what happened. Their response wasn’t the response we were looking for but at least they acknowledged that it would be coming, when in another story.
