OS7 and UMA

Hi,

 

According to Orange in the UK, UMA will be made available by Feb of 2012 for all handsets.  Why is there a hold up in this, and are all handsets capable of UMA seeing as how the 9900 doesn't list any such feature whereas the 9810/60 and 9360 do.

Re: OS7 and UMA

Hi alasio,

 

Great question. We are working closely with our carrier partners on rolling out UMA/GAN support for BlackBerry 7 with a future software update. We will provide updates here on the Support Community, so please stay posted!  I should mention that the BlackBerry Curve 9360 with OS7 already supports UMA.

 

Thanks,

Annu

Re: OS7 and UMA

But again, this falls back to which devices are likely to have UMA.

 

I am due for my upgrade and UMA is the deciding factor for me.  WIthout it, I may as well not have a mobile device when I am at home due to the location and lack of signal.  If the Curve 9360 is the only device supporting UMA, I think OS7 will be left with a huge gaping hole and skipped by a huge base of consumers.
