Is there a way to configure the Blackberry Z30 to use my home WiFi network to make outgoing phone calls and to receive incoming phone calls when the WiFi signall is available?

Hi and Welcome to the Community!
Both of those "ifs" must be "true"...otherwise, the service is not available to you. I can tell you that on my BB10 with TMO-US, their network does support this, but they have yet to catch up with the latest BB10 OS levels for their app. Hence, I only reach "true" on the first requirement...and therefore cannot have WiFi calling until TMO catches their required device app up to the latest OS levels.
You, of course, must inquire of your own carrier to determine the result of both of those required "ifs".

Thank you. I received a Z30 evaluation unit from Blackberry for potential uses in my industry.
The sim slot is open. I was told the unit would be pre-configured for Verizon.
Today, I learned that Verizon charges $50 for the first GB. I can do much better.
In fact Verizon sells me 1 GB / month on my Chromebook for $20 !!
I am not speed-sensitive
any further suggestions?

thanks. i skipped a step
is it possible to use the z30 for wifi phone calls within range of a secure LAN if the Z30 is not enabled by a cdma carrier yet ?
The LAN has access to VOIP capability already.
I was informed that a Blackberry app might facilitate this.

Ahhh...yes, an entirely different question indeed -- not UMA, but rather pure VoIP. OK.
So, you have a Z30 that has no carrier-level voice service at all on it (e.g., no SIM card), and you want to use a 3rd party VOIP app (e.g., Google Voice) that could allow you to make/receive phone calls via WiFi with that 3rd party service.
OK...as such, this belongs in the BB10 Downloaded Apps board, not the device support board. Stand by...our Mods will shortly move it, and hopefully someone with specific experience with that (not me, sorry) will come by with answers for you.

Thanks for the likes!
This entire thread will move to the proper board, and it will no longer be visible in the Z30 device board. But, I think that it indeed is possible for you to mark more than one post in your thread as solution.
Thanks and good luck!
