So here’s the update on yesterday’s reported OTA update to the G2, which brought Wi-Fi calling and mobile hotspot creation to a very small set of users. T-Mobile released this official statement to clarify its position:
“Wi-Fi Calling and tethering Wi-Fi sharing are not currently supported on the T-Mobile G2. T-Mobile knows these features are important to consumers and we’re working to deliver them to G2 users in the future. We have nothing further to announce at this time.”
It’s pretty much what they’ve said before on the subject, and it doesn’t tell us much. It could mean that the update we saw yesterday was just a test and won’t be rolled out to the rest of G2 owners. Or it might be a test sample to see how these features affect data traffic, in order to help T-Mo with pricing. Or maybe they really are rolling it out to everyone and just haven’t put the support feautres, etc. in place yet.
