    You need a phone that uses wifi. You can only get free calling by using Google voice (see forums here on use) Skype to Skype, Fring to Fring. Even if you use wifi calling on a BB or UMA phone, the call still goes though the providers network if you dial direct.

    TMO does use wifi calling. There was just a big discussion on how this worked on Howard Forums

    I've used an unlocked phone Skype to Skype with no SIM card in it. Just the wifi band.

    i think what he means is that he doesnt have data plan but probably can hook up to wifi in the cafe or such.
