I just added the free and clear option to my account for 5 dollars about 20 minutes ago. The lady said AT&T as one of them. Is that correct? I thought they used GSM?

AT&T/Cingular is one of their partners for Analog roaming, but you're more likely to roam on one of the CDMA majors like Verizon, US Cellular, or Alltel. If you roam analog, there is a good chance you're on a Verizon analog tower or a Cingular/AT&T tower.

You need to look at the PRL (Preferred Roaming List) and look at your area and see what the various carriers are and their priority. I have a good link to the PRL decodes, but it's not on this computer. Sorry.

most of the areas are verizon digital or alltell (which is almost verizon anyway)

I'm from Darien, WI It is right next to Delavan, WI about 20 minutes away from Janesville WI.

I have great coverage where I live. the free and clear works perfectly. I used to have it before then got rid of it to save 5.00.

I've never been in a spot without service :)

I do know in noth/central Wisconsin (just on the outskirts of Merrill area) they have a roaming partner, CellularOne as I did the wonderful 611 while roaming and it went to their customer service.

In Phoenix the roaming partner is Alltel on 800mhz CDMA -- I think in other parts of Rural AZ its Western Wireless...

I know I was up at the Grand Canyon and was Digital Roaming the whole time... (Though my hotel was a little off the main road and I could only get an Analog Roaming signal if I was indoors.)

Greetings. This is my first post.
I am on a f&c plan - when am I charged for roaming and long distance? Is it dependent on purchasing the $10/50 minute off-network option?

I emailed a Sprint CSR a couple of times, but I am not confident of the answers since they seemed to contradict themselves. At any rate, I am really trying to figure out what is in my plan for a 60-mile radius of Anchorage, AK. Thanks in advance.

Oddly when I was at the Grand Canyon last month my old Samsung A680 could not pick up any signal of any kind even though my brother's Sanyo 8200 was CDMA roaming on Alltel. No idea why but don't think it was a bad phone since it roams everywhere else with no problem. *shrug*

The 10.00 50 minute off network option is for when you use your phone and it is not on sprint network(digital and analog roam). Long distance should be included in your plan.
