What is this triangle on my phone?

I looked around but I can't seem to figure out what this blue triangle at the top of my phone is. I'm guessing it mean roaming. Can I not set this phone to sprint only?

Yes it means your roaming. You can set it to Home only, as you can see for me sometimes it would roam when there was no need to.

most plans include roaming, why would you set it to sprint only?

Well it varies from person to person but as you can see in my situation my phone would downgrade me to roaming when I had perfectly good Sprint service.I live in an area where sprint service is pretty good so I never need to roam. I'll change it to allow roaming when I travel though.

Plus the battery drains faster when roaming.
