Default 8830 Roaming in Japan -- CONFIRMED IT WORKS!

[SEE LATER POSTS ... CONFIRMED IT WORKS IN SELECTED CITIES IN JAPAN FOR CDMA VOICE ROAMING]


One of my co-workers claims his 8830 was able to make and receive calls when he was in Japan last week (Tokyo area). No data but voice was working.

Is there a new roaming agreement between Sprint and Japanese telcos to allow 8830 to roam in Japan?

I have tried this on my previous trips to Japan and never got a signal.

From the other posts here (yes -- I used the search feature already!), 8830 is previously noted as not compatible with Japan CDMA standard.

My question is --- did something change in last 1-2 months to suddenly allow 8830 to roam in Japan?

My colleague also notes that data roaming was working in S. Korea.
