T-Mobile Makes Its Wi-Fi Calling Feature Free (Again)
It’s amazing what losing 99,000 customers in three months will do. It looks like T-Mobile has made an about face with its Wi-Fi calling feature. In statement issued to GigaOm, the company announced that its customers will now have the ability to place calls over Wi-Fi at no additional charge.
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.
Its about time! When this feature was first announced, users rejoiced over the new ability to make calls over the web instead of using their minutes. But that euphoria quickly turned to dismay when T-Mobile announced that calls made with the service would actually count toward your minutes. Will this news help T-Mobile regain those lost customers? Probably not, but it could go a along way toward keeping their current ones happier.
