Just a heads up, I'm on tmobile's $30 prepaid plan, and I was able to use wifi calling and it didn't use any minutes. I was also able to use google voice as my voicemail. Everything's running good so far.

EDIT: I guess there was a lag on the tmobile website, they did deduct minutes from me. Sorry for posting wrong information! I can confirm google voice working on this plan.

Are you sure it didn't use any minutes? I was running the stock ROM since it was pulled from the T-Mobile version and posted in the T-Mobile Note section (I posted a CWM zip of the ROM without some of the bloat) and I didn't notice that wifi calling usage didn't count against my minutes. AFAIK, wifi calling isn't free on their prepaid plans, and native call forwarding to Google Voicemail isn't either? Of course I never did figure out how to see a call log on T-Mobile's account site so I'm never sure how they are actually billing my 100 minutes a month and I might have missed something. It would be awesome if it didn't actually count!

just flashed and tried WI FI calling, and the 3 minutes call I made was deducted from my 100 mins allotment, the website just takes a long time to update this information, thanks for the effort thou, flashing back to my old ROM

Re: [ROM]Install T-Mobile Stock 4.0.4 on i717
So I'm thinking about getting a at&t note, but I want to use T-Mobile. Do you think I can just flag this Rom, then insert a T-Mobile SIM? Or would it still need to be unlocked?

yep WI FI calling works perfectly but as stated in Tmobile website it uses the minutes available in your plan, so not really free minutes (at least on the $30 100 mins unlimited web and text plan)
