Trying to figure out roaming with Verizon

Discussion in 'alt.cellular.verizon' started by Michael, Jul 6, 2004.

    Hello!!

    I have tried to read every page available on the Verizon website and
    have had numerous conversations with different departments within
    Verizon and have received numerous answers so I am so confused. I am
    trying to figure out how plan minutes are calculated when traveling
    across the country.

    I have the Americhoice plan and also pay for IN-Network and my local
    area is the Houston, Texas vicinity. I am on a family plan with shared
    minutes with 4 other phones.

    I would like to know how minutes are counted when my phone is on an
    "Extended Network". Do nights and weekend minutes still count as free?
    Are my family plan minutes or in-network minutes calls still free or
    do they deduct from our regular minutes?

    Also, I have a Motorola C343 and when I am on an "Extended Network"
    the phone has a flashing triangle (if this information helps). So far
    I have never seen it go into roam within any states I am in (at least
    I think, what does the phone display when it is roaming?)

    Thanks for the help!!

    Michael

    Extended Network areas you still receive your free N/W's. In-network
    minutes aren't available because you aren't in the network. Calls between
    your phones come out of your regular minute allowance.

    If its roaming, the banner will read "Roaming" and the triangle roaming
    indicator will be solid instead of flashing.
