    Looking at Sprintpcs's everywhere coverage, does it really give you
    coverage everywhere?

    If there is another cdma/analogue signal available, is it always
    available for use?

    Free and Clear give you coverage anywhere on Sprint's CDMA network.
    Roaming is NOT included and you will charged for it. If you think
    you'll end up roaming, you can get the Free and Clear America plan
    which costs $10 more, and lets you roam for free as well. Only catch
    is that you can't roam for more than 50% of your minutes. But if you
    roam that much, you shouldn't have Sprint to begin with.

    don't know about "everywhere", but the coverage is pretty damned impressive.

    No. Just any CDMA or analog signal won't do. The signal has to be from
    a carrier which is listed in the phone's PRL (Preferred Roaming List)
    and for that location's SID.

    Here's an example: I was camping a few weeks ago at Gold Lake (an hour
    up Hwy 89 north of Truckee, CA). In the surrounding towns my Samsung
    A460 (with PRL 10019) analog roamed on US Cellular. At the lakeside
    campsite my phone said No Service, and I only received a US Cellular
    signal after climbing up the trail to a higher elevation.

    But someone told me (I didn't see it) that another camper's Verizon
    phone worked at lakeside. So though Verizon's SID 40 is a roaming
    partner in the SF Bay Area, I'm guessing its SID in the county I was
    camping in isn't listed in the PRL as a roaming partner, or even as a
    lower priority partner than US Cellular. Or the Verizon phone itself
    was roaming on some other carrier that was not listed in the SPCS PRL.

    How can I check which PRL I am on -

    I have a Samsung N200

    and an a460 on order.

    Thanks,
