    Quick question for you folks:

    Currently I am on the free and clear 300 AT and unlimited N/W plan for $30.
    (zip code 76543) If I add F&CA for $5 does that only apply in my home area
    only? The website says additional per minute charges apply for domestic
    long distance, so I'm assuming it's home area only. Second question is, if
    a person is on F&CA, will they roam onto Alltel's service in the Upper
    Peninsula of Michigan?

    Thanks,

    Mark

    Mark, I have no clue why the website has that verbiage, as I've verified LD
    is included, no matter where I go in the US ... As to who you will roam on,
    it depends on what phone you have and who SPCS has made roaming agreements
    with. I mention the phone as those phones that are only single bands (1900
    CDMA), it's going to be limited to a few providers coast to coast. If the
    phone is dual band, dual mode (1900 CDMA & 800 Analog), it's going to offer
    more roaming partners. Going with a dual band tri mode, which also includes
    800 CDMA, more providers obviously.

    Long story short, you may or may not be roaming on Alltel, depending on who
    SPCS made their roaming agreement with in that area.

    Thanks Bob,

    I did a google search (didn't think to do it before I posted.. sorry) and
    got the LD question straightened out. As to which phone I have, I currently
    use the Sanyo 4900. I am considering switching to either the Sanyo 8100 or
    the Samsung VGA1000, so I'm not worried about limiting my possiblities. I
    haven't run into any roaming issues locally, but would be interested in
    adding F&CA for the occasional trip back home (Wisconsin and Upper Michigan
    areas). In Michigan, it looks like Alltel is the only major player for CDMA
    coverage. The part of Wisconsin I go to, Green Bay and points north, appear
    to be covered mostly by Verizon now, although I do get Sprint coverage at my
    parents house. So basically I'm looking at renewing my contract and getting
    the 7PM nights as possibly adding the F&CA at a later point.

    So how about it? Anyone have any experience using F&CA in the Upper
    Peninsula? I've talked to people on the verizon group who are extended
    network on Alltel, and I'm hoping that Sprint has a similar agreement.

    Mark
