I heard from a reliable source that t-mobile rents their cell sites to cingular. Is this true and does cingular do the same for t-mobile? Thanks

Providers do have roaming agreements with one another, which allows for each to use some of the others cell sites....

Western Wireless started Western PCS then became Voice Stream then sold to T-Mobile.The best provider gives you a plan with the minutes you need at the right price. The coverage that you need to make calls all the time.

There are tower rental companies like American Tower Crown Castle SBA Towers Spectrasite. Nearly every provider that has more than 1 million or more customers use tower rental companies for building a wireless network.The best provider gives you a plan with the minutes you need at the right price.

Sometimes two providers will share towers or rent off of one another. T-Mobile can't rent towers in the Carolinas since they have licenses only for a very small part of those states. So T-mobile has a roaming aggrement to usee Cingular's network in the Carolinas to make and recieve calls. Same with Iowa Wireless in the northeast part of Iowa and rural Westwestern states with Western Wireless.The best provider gives you a plan with the minutes you need at the right price. The coverage that you need to make calls all the time.

Ok, I also heard from a customer service rep that it could take up to 90 days to process calls from out of state towers. So if leave Illinois and go to Texas, the Texas sites may not show on my bill for 2-3 months. Good thing there's rollover!!-Craig

The provider you roamed on has 30 days to report roaming charges after that they can't charge you roaming. So if it you roamed on your last day of your billing cycle in April it won't appear on that cycle and lets say it took the full 30 days to arrive at your wireless providers office and another day to process so it would not be on your May billing cycle, but on the June billing cycle. This is very very rare today. Roaming charges usally will appear within 10 days in most cases.
