    My 14 days is up, got my first bill on the Free and Clear America Plan. No
    roaming or LD charges are supposed to apply.


    Well, I got nailed for a bunch of roaming charges on a trip we made out of
    state, am on hold listening to the music while they try to fix it, hope they
    can.

    Re: Watch out for Roaming charges on FCA

    I'm standing by to travel, and I will exceed 50% for two months. 3 CS reps
    are pretty consistant that 3 months in a row would make the "bad boy" bell
    ring. But here and there, exceeding 50% in one month is not a concern of
    SprintPCS.

    I'm anxious to hear his reply. And calling CS is a pain for SprintPCS.

    Kevin is correct, you are generally given a 3 month grace period before
    they begin to talk to you.

    The 50% rule is to just avoid people from activating sprint phones who
    do not live/work/play in the service area. It can expensive...

    Kevin,

    Get names, dates, EXACT promises, and company ID's from everyone who
    promises you this.

    *My* understanding is that >50% roaming any two months within a 3-month
    period will get you removed from F&CA.

    The story continues. On the phone, Sprint correctly identified that the
    charges were incorrect, it took them awhile to figure out why. I don't
    understand their explanation, something an "LR" code not being properly
    attached to me <something or other>. They promised to issue credit.

    I check my on line invoice a few hours later.

    My bill went up another $14.

    I will be on the phone again later.

    Well for me I roamed over half of my minutes used for 3 months on my FCA
    plan. Nothing was said so I called CS because of all the chatter here. I
    spoke with two different reps and Explained that I had not used over half of
    my purchased minutes roaming, just over half of my minutes used. They both
    said I was fine with nothing to worry about. And so far my bills have been
    correct.
    I also program my A500 to digital roam rather than analog roam. Seems that
    did not matter either.

    regards

    I'm not sure where I picked this up, but somewhere it did say half of
    the minutes used, which seems strange.

    Ooh, I'm Phillipe, I'm going to grab my red phone and call Executive
    Services for every problem, heh, and I'll tell everyone else to do it.
    That way, exec services will get so flooded with people wanting small
    credits that they will burn out and then I will win in my goal of
    making Sprint worse for everyone.
