    Other than many 'dead' areas, I have to say that if there is a signal
    at all, I can get roaming service when not on the PCS network.
    However, that also means I pay roaming charges, and that happens in
    far too many metropolitan areas for a "nationwide, no roaming
    network".

    Which is another of my problems, since the cell phone is primarily
    used when I am out of town. So far, it has stayed under the 50%
    roaming, but there have been one or two months where it really
    "teetered" on the edge.
