internet while roaming

I have the mighty rom custom rom.

My phone is on roam while I'm in the basement of my office and that is where I am working.

If I use the wireless router for the ROM and the phone is set to roam will it even be possible to surf?

What would the costs be if I tried to internet while roaming? Will it affect my bill by surfing while roaming?

Re: internet while roaming

sure itll work... but just a warning, Sprint has a fine print in you user agreemeant that says if you use over 200MB of Data while roaming - they may terminate your contract out right..... people have actually used this rule to get booted out of contract to avoid ETF fees...

Im sure you have to do it more than one time for them to get upset over it... but you certainly dont have to worry about any charges.. your data is included and so is roaming... only thing sprint could do is cancel you if you go over that 200MB mark, but like i said-I doubt theyd do it unless it was reoccouring...

Your office doesnt have wifi?? you could just connect to the office wifi and use that and then you dont have to worry about anything

First off, if you've got a wireless router, forget cellular data. My home lacks signal for the most part, so I don't even have the CDMA radio on here, just when I'm out an' about. Secondly, the only places Sprint lacks service that you would be roaming is Verizon, and when there is no sprint, usually it is just a 1xrTT area, so you will struggle to load even the smallest pages, not to mention it'll cost a lot more if you aren't on Boost Mobile.

And how many people have a link labeled "run" on their Windows Mobile devices?
