Great news for all of you Android fans on T-Mobile: Boy Genius Report received a tip that T-Mobile plans to bring its UMA calling functionality to Android handsets, with testing to begin in Q3 of this year.  For those who don't know, unlicensed mobile access (UMA) allows a device to make phone calls using an existing Wi-Fi connection like the one in your home when your cell service may not be spectacular.  T-Mobile offers UMA access on many of their devices, such as BlackBerrys, but has yet to make the service available on their Android devices.

Have you used T-Mobile's UMA service in the past?  Are you excited about the idea of making UMA calls from an Android device? Tell us in the comments!
