#MIN still not working in some areas

    I wouldn't rely on #MIN to give you an accurate reading of minutes. I
    know they have a disclaimer saying it's just an estimate, but last
    month I found how how true that was. I was out of town and had used
    my phone in-network (I have America's choice) and had been keeping
    track of my minutes with #MIN. The day after I got back, I made a
    10-minute call, then checked my minutes shortly thereafter. It said I
    had used 389 peak minutes. I didn't use the phone again that day,
    knowing how close I was to my 400 allotment. The next day, I happened
    to check it again, and now it said 451 minutes!! It obviously took
    more than 24 hours for calls I made while I was traveling to be
    counted. I never would have used the phone as much had I had an
    accurate account of my minutes.

    Anyway, I'll never trust #MIN again. Fool me once, shame on you.
    Fool me twice...

    I've found if I make my calls within my home SID, #MIN is pretty darn
    accurate is updates almost instantly.

    Outside my home SID (and expecially when I'm on Extended Network), it
    may take up to a week for it to get updated.

    At least VZW says its ESTIMATED, covering their hide :).
