Default Domestic Roaming

Please Login to Remove!

Being an avid skier, I often go skiing in vermont often. VZW coverage is spotty at best in some regions, unicell is not. I was looking at the connection options (Manage Connections>Mobile Network Options>Network Selection mode and I see an option GSM/UMTS. I clicked on it, and within a half minute it said the network was ATT. By this logic, could I roam on Unicell the same way, as it is a GSM network? (Also, would it be regarded as roaming because Verizon bought Unicell?)

@redsox: One of the strengths of the Storm is its ability to roam anywhere including international. Make sure that you are configured for auto select on all options

@C17Driver: Nice wheels (wings?) .73
