    I think this depends on your plan. In California, In-Network for local
    plans specify that both phones must be both on a VZW system and in the
    "Local In-Network" area for In-Network to apply. But the America's Choice
    version of In-Network says that if you are in the national In-Network area
    (essentially, any native VZW system), then outgoing calls to other VZW
    phones, and incoming calls where the system can identify the caller as
    a VZW phone (e.g., Caller-ID), are billed as In-Network on that phone,
    regardless of what system the other phone is on. The other phone will
    be billed based on where it is. That is why on my bill, there is a
    distinct code for "In-Network call" and "billed to In-Network minutes".
    My SingleRateNational phone, which does not have In-Network minutes,
    nonetheless shows relevant calls as "In-Network", even though those
    calls come out of my regular bucket of minutes. My America's Choice
    phones show both codes on such calls.
