    I came very close on at least two occasions during my business travel.
    The phone is primarily used for business when I am at a client's, and
    that is usually out of my home area.

    When I can't get a PCS signal, I'm forced to roam.

    I have Sprint PCS. I wind up on roaming at least 25% of the calls I
    make on a regular basis. I find it irritating that I have to pay a
    montly service fee to get the "true nationwide network with no
    roaming" that the ads promised.

    My contract is up, and yes, I am changing providers. The plan I have
    found is $20.00 per month cheaper, has TRUE no roaming anywhere in the
    US, regardless of what network I am currently connected to, and has
    more minutes per month. My sister has the same provider, and I have
    done side by side tests with her phone and mine in all the areas of
    Orlando that I can't get a signal. I'm at "searching for signal" and
    she's at 4 or 5 bars in every location.

    $5.00 per month to get a true national plan without roaming charges.
    It just torques me.
