Right now T-Mobile is the only US carrier to offer UMA WiFi calling on Android phones. Here is a list of phones that currently support the Kineto application that is not currently available in the Android marketplace. The application is free but minutes are deducted from your total plan if you make calls over WiFi which is reasonable. Other carriers like AT&T, Verizon & Sprint have largely ignored this demand from consumers because of their growing femtocell businesses where they would like to sell you a piece of hardware for around $250 plus a monthly data plan. See: AT&T Microcell, Verizon femtocell & Sprint femtocell sales.
