If you have Google voice, talkatone is the answer for prepaid 30 dollar t mobile accounts with Free WiFi and 3g/4g calls.

T-Mobile does deduct minutes for WiFi calling, unless you have unlimited minutes on the account, the t mobile WiFi calling app does use out of your allotment.

I guess there was a lag on the tmobile website, they did deduct minutes from me. Sorry for posting wrong information! Wifi calling from tmobile on their $30 prepaid plan uses your minutes

When i flashed this rom, still only had edge. Then i noticed that i still have a i717 baseband. Isn't it supposed to change my baseband when i flash the rom?

You need to call them and add Free Wifi calling option to your line then the minute won't be deduct.

Great on postpaid accounts with unlimited minutes, not so much for prepaid with limited minutes.

"There is no additional monthly charge to use the Wi-Fi Calling feature on your handset. Wi-Fi Calling uses monthly plan minutes for the following:
Calls made from the US to US numbers
Calls made from the US to international numbers (subject to international rates)
Calls made from outside the US to US numbers (not charged roaming)
Calls made from outside the US to international numbers (subject to international rates, but not charged roaming)"

--T Mobile Customer Support Doc http://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-1680


Also as noted before, this process will not touch your baseband(radio), it will carry over from your previous ROM.
