I've had the M8 now for about a week and finally had a chance to really sit down and toy around with it last night.
4G speeds in my area are so fast that I wasn't really missing wifi, but I flipped it on so I could connect to my access point.

A message came up that said that all voice and text traffic would now take place over my wifi network rather than the cell network. A very cool feature indeed. My question is though.... once I've rooted, if I flash a new rom, would I lose that voip functionality? I'm assuming yes, but I'm just asking to be sure.

Only if you flash an AOSP ROM or a Sense ROM that is not from T-Mobile would you lose that functionality.

Yeah it would have to be a T-Mobile US based sense rom. Even a sense rom from a different carrier/WWE would make you lose the functionality

Some WWE ROMs have Wi-Fi calling included you have to make sure you download the right one
