Ok, I don't know much about cell phones. My daughter has a Sprint cell phone,& where we live it's on "roaming", so she got into trouble callling fellow Sprint customers who she thought were free. My question is,if she has free unlimited texting,will they also cost her when the phone is on roaming?
Thanks for any help!

Yer darn tootin she'll be in trouble! If the phone roams on to somebody else's carrier- which should show up on your sceen- unless they have a roaming agreement with Sprint, she is gonna get hit hard. Text will cost 50 cents each in many cases!

^^^^^^ No that's untrue.....

Sprint doesnot charge for roaming, the only caveat with Sprint and Roaming is while roaming M2M calls doesnt work...N/W will still work however...

If you're roaming in the house, call Sprint and have them send you and Airave kit, it hook into your Modem or wireless router and you get Sprint signal all over the house, so your phone wont need to roam.
