    Someone else suggested that on the last day of the month you dial *4 to
    check your usage, and call a landline (home or office) and leave your
    cell phone "off the hook" to use up minutes to get yourself near your
    limit, to maximize allowable roaming minutes.

    Someone else suggested that on the last day of the month you dial *4 to
    check your usage, and call a landline (home or office) and leave your
