    Re: Cingular and Sprint Pursuing Settlement in Dispute over Advertising Claims

    If you are not charged for it, then it is true-service.

    MN as well, as the current Sprint PCS plans cover free roaming and the native
    Sprint network is larger than the native Verizon network.

    Excluding data and perhaps a voicemail indication, why should you care?
    Granted, roaming analog is a drawback, but if you roam digital, why should you
    care? I drive along the north shore of Lake Superior and roamed onto Verizon
    for digital and then roamed onto a local carrier for analog and didn't pay a
    dime. I was making and receiving phone calls the entire time. No complaints
    from me in that area. Sprint PCS by the way.

    Tommy T is correct. Why should you care if you are roaming if you can make
    and receive calls at no additional charge?

    I would only count it IF you received ALL of your services (Voice, DATA,
    SMS, effective call routing to your customer service number) seamlessly,
    and without knowing you're roaming if it werent' for your roaming
    indicator. THAT I might consider "true service."

    Unfortunately that's not always the state of things. WHen you roam,
    voice will work, most of the time. SMS and VM notifications will work
    some of the times, and only in some places.

    Seeing as no "home" carrier can fully guarantee the service of other
    roaming partners, it can't and shouldn't be called "true" service. Even
    Sprint's "affiliate" operation that they used to fill out their network
    was a bit dubious, but at least 99.9% of the time, it worked seamlessly
    to the end user (in spite of protracted legal battles, particularly
    towards the close of the S-N merger).
