    Weird. Let's just say that the online PDF invoice only shows calls
    from 9.12.03.

    All the other dates are NOWHERE TO BE FOUND!!!!

    I had like 40 minutes in analog roaming from a camping trip in that
    billing period and expected my bill to be much larger!!!

    I have quickly paid the bill online and will accept that invoice.
    They dare not invoice me again for *their* mistake.

    Anyone notice anything like this????

    I don't think that the roaming is always reported right away!?

    Roaminf charges can can 2-3 billing cycles to appear on your invoices..
    Remember that the companies who towes you were roaming on have to tally
    up the calls and cost, and pass them along to sprint.

    There's a class-action suit against AT&T over delayed billing.
    There's a new invention that allows Real Time Billing. It's called a
    computer.

    Isn't the lawsuit just a bit more complex than *just* that the billing
    is delayed? I thought it involved billing those minutes in the month
    during which they showed up on the bill, rather than when they were
    actually incurred.

    As I understand here at Sprint, we don't do that. Minutes roamed in
    June stay in June's usage, even if it takes until August to get them.

    ***
    Under the Digital One Rate (DOR) Plan, AT&T Wireless (AWS) subscribers
    are to receive a set number of included airtime minutes per month, with
    no charges for roaming or long distance calls. Under the delayed billing
    methodology adopted by AWS, roaming calls made or received on another
    carrier's network were accounted for in the month they were reported to
    AWS by the other carriers rather than in the month the roaming calls
    were made.

    AWS' methodology caused subscribers to incur charges for roaming calls
    that would not have been incurred if the calls were billed in the month
    in which the subscriber actually placed the call or if the calls had not
    been a roaming call. Plaintiffs claim that this practice is a breach of
    AT&T Wireless Services' contracts and seek to recover the additional
    airtime charges incurred by subscribers as a result of AWS' delayed
    billing practices.

    I have to admit, I haven't had to handle a call involving roaming
    minutes like that, or billed in a questionable way.

    It took over one month for my Bermuda roaming charges to show up, and
    the same thing for the Cayman Islands.

    Yes Rob, the suit isn't about delayed billing at all. It's about "billing
    those minutes in the month during which they showed up on the bill, rather
    than when they were actually incurred." That's what it's about. Thanks for
    clearing that up.

    But see the only Plans of Sprint that use regular minutes for roaming is the
    F&C America plans

    Roaming is often reported at a later date by the company that you roamed on.
    This is particularily true of analog roaming (all my digital roaming has
    shown up in a day or two). You most certainly will be billed for those
    roaming minutes, but since it doesn't come out of your anytime minutes, it
    isn't going to cost you any more now or later. You do owe it to them when
    the bill comes due, so make sure you set the money aside.

    That's typical of roaming. It can take another month or so before the
    roaming partner gets around to telling Sprint "yeah, this person roamed
    on our netowrk for 40 minutes." In which case, it'll show up on your
    next bill.

    It's not a mistake, Sprint just hasn't gotten the bill yet. And this
    isn't just with Sprint either. When I had verizon, roaming calls took
    forever to post to my bill.
