Need Phone with Wifi Capability

Can someone recommend a SE phone that I has wifi capabilites ? T-Mobile doesn't have many SE phones but I want an unlocked one that will be able to utilize the wifi calling that T-Mobile offers. I assume that wifi calling is not proprietary, but I may be wrong. I don't want an andriod phone, because i only make calls and text, nothing else. It can be a current SE model or discontinued.

Thanks

It's not the same.

We have two phone models with support for UMA. W705 and G705. These are older models and may be hard to get today.

Re: Need Phone with Wifi Capability

you should think about it,  Sony Ericsson will stop releasing non-smartphones by the end of this year, they already stopped supporting/updating symbian and windows phones for more than a year, and the latest Java phones like the txt or txt pro have a LOT of issues and SE won't seem to be interested on updating. the alternative, get a cheap android phone, like the X10 or X8 and then use a custom ROM to update it to the latest firmware.

I would suggest Hazel or Elm in that case. You can find more info about them on the website.

But you will have to check with T-mobile if they can be used for calling over Wi-Fi using their service.
