    UMA Signal Boost for Blackberry

    Managed to get this set up - It enables your home wifi to boost your mobile signal - which is great for me as Orange signal rubbish where I live. Hope this helps someone.

    Remember this is just on Orange, mostly just for Blackberries. We have this set up and also the Vodafone SureSignal box in our house, UMA beats SureSignal hands down in terms of reliability.

    Is it just mobile signal, or does it improve data speeds as well?

    Also, will they bring this with them when Orange and T-mobile merge?

    Would imagine the data should just go thru wifi anyway while at home.

    Just thought I'd add a bit more to this. I am just off the phone to Orange, when using UMA on your blackberry, all calls are free, yes FREE. It does not use your contract minutes. I asked does this enable me to call abroad for free and he said "YES", just like the man from del-monte.

    Free international calls from your mobile !!!
    A very good reason not to get an Iphone.
