Is 100% Roaming OK
We are going to an area of the US where Sprint does not have service.
The only way to use the phone is on roaming. i seem to remember
something in the fine print which limits the percentage of your calls
allowed to be roaming. We will be there for four months. Is this
something I should be concerned about? Thanks,

If you have Sprints roaming plan it allows you to roam for up to 50% of your
anytime minutes. Anything over that will be charged. The standard rate is
50% as anything over that and most cell providers end up eating the over
charges from the other providers that end up billing the other carriers for
the roaming fees. I'm not really sure how SprintPCS fits in to this area.
I would say call and ask. Since Sprint says they'll charge accordingly they
might be able to bill you for all the extra charges incurred and it won't be
an issue but might get expensive if you talk over 50% of your plan.
