Default Roaming

Please Login to Remove!

Can someone explain what exactly roaming is. Is it when one carrier customer connects to another carrier?

I'm heading over to the grand canyon next week and I noticed on sprint coverage maps there is quite an area of gray (Roaming) on the way to the grand canyon. Will my curve show any indications if I am roaming???

It shoulde. On most plans these days theres no roaming charges in the US. I havent had to worry bout roaming in like 10 years or so.

Actually, I am grandfathered in a Northeast regional plan under Cingular now of course AT&T. 300 daytime and 5000 min night weekends. Roaming for me is if I go further south than Virginia I think I get hit for roaming per min. If you got a new plan chances are you don't need to worry about it. I just wonder since I have this calling plan would data usage be considered roaming if I go below Virginia? I been considering $10 more to get roll-over 450min but have not clicked the button to make the change yet.

I believe there is an indicator that shows roaming as a little blue triangle. It may be grey or another color, but I seem to remember the triangle in the top right area of the screen. I believe Sprint also has free roaming, but you may want to call customer service.
