    My house is in an Extended Network area. When you're in one of these, that
    means you're using a different carrier's towers other than Verizon, but
    Verizon has cut a deal with that carrier to make it cost effective enough
    for them to provide you with coverage using your regular plan's package
    minutes. If your phone shows a flashing roam indicator, that means your peak
    airtime minutes and your free night and weekend minutes are available.
    However, you're "In-Network" or mobile-to-mobile, or whatevery want to call
    that option is not available. The "in-network" freebie minutes only are
    available when you're on one of Verizon's own towers (no roam indicator at
    all).

    Keep in mind that if you get a solid roam indicator that is not blinking,
    then you aren't on the America's Choice coverage at all, so you're paying by
    the minute for roaming charges regardless of what time it is or who you are
    calling.

    My house is in an Extended Network area. When you're in one of these, that
    means you're using a different carrier's towers other than Verizon, but
    Verizon has cut a deal with that carrier to make it cost effective enough
    for them to provide you with coverage using your regular plan's package
    minutes. If your phone shows a flashing roam indicator, that means your peak
    airtime minutes and your free night and weekend minutes are available.
    However, you're "In-Network" or mobile-to-mobile, or whatevery want to call
    that option is not available. The "in-network" freebie minutes only are
    available when you're on one of Verizon's own towers (no roam indicator at
    all).

    Keep in mind that if you get a solid roam indicator that is not blinking,
    then you aren't on the America's Choice coverage at all, so you're paying by
    the minute for roaming charges regardless of what time it is or who you are
    calling.
