My phone doesn't have UMA, but my wife's also got an 8900, and it's not connecting. Both yesterday and today we noticed the problem (and yesterday, eventually the network stopped recognizing the SIM completely, a restart fixed that and reconnected to UMA). Albuquerque, NM. It's the weekend so it's not a big deal as all our minutes are free anyway, and we don't pay for the unlimited service, but we were considering upgrading to it and ditching our home phone, so we'll be keeping an eye on the reliability. If the connection doesn't get better, it's a big strike against T-Mobile (not that it would matter - we're locked into a contract for another 2 years, anyway).
