Default AC1 Roaming charges...Anyone remember the per-minute charge?

I'm in Florida, visiting relatives, and I was roaming onto a
non-included network (Cingular), while out in an area with no Verizon
coverage. The display was not flashing, which indicates off-extended
network roaming. I can't remember how much Verizon charges for
off-network roaming on the old Americas Choice plan.

Before anyone chimes in with the impossibility of roaming onto Cingular,
it was the Cingular AMPS network that I was roaming onto. I was out in
the Everglades, and there was no digital coverage of any kind, GSM,
CDMA, or iDEN (well I guess satellite would have worked).

I found it rather ironic, that as a Verizon customer, I had good
coverage on Cingular's network, but that almost no Cingular customer,
albeit the few TDMA/AMPS holdouts, could use Cingular's excellent AMPS
network in this area. It'll be a real shame when Cingular turns off this
network in 2008.

I remember it as---ouch--- 69 cents per min. If that's right, I hope you
weren't on too long ;-)

I remember $0.69/min and I think LD charges were extra.

Ouch indeed. I think I was on for only about six minutes, so it won't be
too bad. I guess I can't check the calls until the on-line statement is
available, they don't let you see call details prior to the end of the
billing period.
