What does it mean when your phone says "Digital Roaming"
My home SID is 4174 on Sprint network, but when I force my phone to roam during poor receptions, it would go to different SIDs.
I noticed that some SIDs cause the phone to display. When it jumps on SID 4945, Cricket Wireless, it says "Digital Roaming", but when it goes to SID 30, Verizon Wireless, the triangle comes on by the signal strength bar, but it doesn't say "Digital Roaming"...

as long as you have unlimited roaming then it means nothing to you.it is how they set up the provider in the sid.and some phones just do the triangle now.
it usefulness is for people who didnt have roaming unless it is on a partner that they have a agrement that they wont charge for roaming(sprint and ntelos has some agreement).it was,if it actually said digital roaming then you were getting charged,if it showed the triangle(which is still roaming)then you were just using plan minutes.
