This is the reason I can't switch to the EVO from VZW.

"Usage Limitation: Sprint may terminate service if (1) more than 800 minutes, (2) a majority of minutes or (3) a majority of kilobytes in a given month are used while roaming."

I was booted from At&t's network because of this. I had an iPhone for all of 3 weeks before they cut me off. I failed to read the "fine print".

As far I know, Verizon doesn't not have this clause in their contract. Besides, I have never been able to find an area to roam in. I might be paying more per month, but at least I can depend on not getting shut down.

Re: This is the reason I can't switch to the EVO from VZW.

you shouldn't be on a carrier where all your minutes are going to be roaming minutes anyway.. if you're using more roam minutes than local minutes it's obviously not the correct carrier for you.

vzw will never have or get the phones sprint gets anyway, and if they do expect to wait a year or more for it,.. good luck getting the Evo on vzw though.

First of all AT&T is a jerk..mostly with their iphone...second of all Sprint is probably the most lax carrier their is...I haven't heard any incidence of sprint terminating due to that...

Re: This is the reason I can't switch to the EVO from VZW.

Sprint does set a limit to how many roaming minutes you can use, lets face it, the more roam you use the more it costs Sprint. They are able to offer a limited amount of roam because they pay fees to people who own the towers, if you go over the limit they have to pay overages that they pass to you, makes business sense.
As mentioned previously, you should find a provider in which you roam less on. Roaming means you're using a tower not owned or leased by your provider.
As far as data limits, I know I use a lot of data and have never received an additional fee for the data, you can even use roaming data with Sprint (within reason) without being charged extra.
All carriers have a cap on roaming, as I said it only make business sense.

Re: This is the reason I can't switch to the EVO from VZW.

This is truly a YMMV situation. In the Atlanta area, Sprint functions flawlessly. And with 4G up and running, I'm ready to go for the Evo release. I only go into roaming when I'm in certain parts of our "metro" system.

But they will have the HTC Incredible (possibly this month) which is quite nice. No 4G, but VZW has none to offer yet.

Re: This is the reason I can't switch to the EVO from VZW.

My brother was on Sprint recently. Their coverage is very slim here in E Ky. He was traveling back and forth to Tenneesee due to work. His wife's phone stayed in a roam area and they eventually cut that phone from the contract. I have line of sight to a Sprint tower from my house so I'm good to go. Althought it will be after the next ice age before I get 4G here

From what I've seen Sprint, seems to let some slide and not others.

I have a friend on Verizon who roams most of the time here and has had the contract for a year at least I think.

I can't wait to hear some feedback on the EVO when it hits
