    Yesterday I started being able to use data while roaming on VZW (I do
    not get a Sprint signal at my house). This did not work a few days
    ago.

    Anyone know what's going on?

    Thanks.

    Re: Data working while roaming on VZW?

    It started working very well about three weeks ago. I believe that it is
    part of Sprint's campaign to aggressively market their products to the
    business and corporate customers. These customers require constant data
    access regardless of the coverage area.

    Many newer phones can now use data roaming. You want to have the vision
    pack and an plan that does not charge for roaming. I would also make
    sure that you have the latest PRL update. (Call Sprint and ask for one.
    It's free.) This is great in areas where Sprint does not have EVDO
    coverage and another network (like Alltel) does. As long as you have
    those two packages, there are no extra charges. Enjoy!

    1) 10035? or do you need something even latest?

    2) While I have been in areas that I have received text messages, I have
    yet to be in area that I can browse the web while roaming....

    (Vision plan)

    Only certain phones have this ability. For instance, I know the Katana
    can (though it cannot use EVDO/High Speed) but the Samsung A920 cannot
    do this.

    PRL 20225 is the latest for EVDO phones.
    PRL 10036 is the latest for non-EVDO phones.

    These are the ones that enable data roaming.
