Lots and lots of stuff from T-Mobile today that I’m sure plenty of you will love. Firstly, they’re finally bringing back unlimited WiFi calling. If you have access to a WiFi network and your signal strength is spotty you can use WiFi calling (on a select number of T-Mobile phones) to ensure you and the person you’re talking to enjoys the smoothest of conversations. It’s free and should be available for anyone with an Android device with WiFi calling features. Look out for that one on Wednesday.

Secondly, they’ve informed their employees about Gingerbread on the G2. We won’t get too excited, but it does confirm that we’re even closer to getting the OTA upgrade. Owners of this phone were frustrated considering it was just one of few stock Android devices on the market and it still has not gotten its taste of ginger. Looks like we may not have to wait much longer.

Finally, Magenta’s bringing Name ID and Voicemail to Text. The two are straight forward – the former will show you the caller’s name, number, city and state if they aren’t in your address book (and if they aren’t calling blocked), while the latter will transcribe your voicemails to text so you can read instead of listen. (And we’re not so sure you should be getting too excited about that if it’s anything like YouTube’s automated captions or Google Voice’s voicemail transcriptions.) [TmoNews 1|2|3]
