Raoming on the Q

I just checked my bill... I'm in Arizona and two of my lines are in California. Turns out my little sister was charged approx. $ 95 for making a phone call while roaming in San Francisco, at the same time it was a long distance call. That was just one of the calls that hiked up my bill. But she nearly trippled my monthly phone bill.

So my question is will the Q tell you while it's roaming. Like on my past phones it would let you know that you need to push (1) to allow the roam charges. I don't think i've really roamed on my Q.. i went out of town a few weeks ago, but don't recall roaming or anything.

But i'm trying to get the facts straight before i straight girll her with a 101 questions... i just got off the phone with SPRINT just now...long story.. but hey this time i got some EXECLLENT customer service.

i'm just going to run through my phone settings to double check some stuff.. but if anyone has any insite let me know...

thanks

Their are a couple of easy ways to tell if you don't mod the homescreen alot. The triangle with the data connection inthe taskbar & the "Roaming Service" in the carrier plugin. Also the triangle will show on the topbar during a call

you know whats funny.."welcome to americanroaming.cow your phone is not currently registered in the area and can not be billed the right manner. Press 1 to be charged collect and...." after i got off the phone with sprint on my Q.. thats what i got. But when i use my cheap samsung phone to make a call... there is no problem

i'm freaking out because this never happened to me.. and now my Q just litterally froze up on me

when i tried to call voice mail.. there was a beep...a pause then that automated message about roaming came up

WIERD!!!! I'm about to call sprint again.. after i eat HAHA

found out one of the CS reps over the phone put a "HOME ROAM" code on my phone. She meant to put it on another one of my lines as a safety issue, but it went down on me.
