Just to refresh everyone's memory, here is how Sprint displayed their Oklahoma coverage in Feb '12 and what it would be after their reduction in service area due to the cancellation of their roaming agreement with Pioneer. Who was at fault for the termination of the agreement is completely immaterial, because this graphic was from Sprint, not Pioneer, it was sent to all Sprint customers in the affected areas. It was taken directly from Sprint's coverage maps.
Note the areas shown in DARK GREEN, which in the legend is for NATIVE Sprint, not off-network roaming. Same in both maps, voice and data, one billed as "Sprint Voice Coverage" and one billed as "3G Broadband Data" with separate colors for "Off-Network" and "Voice Roaming Coverage". Sprint was showing it as NATIVE, not as roaming. When you went to Sprint's site and checked for coverage in your area, this is what it would show. I wonder how many other areas of the US are shown this way, in Sprint or any other carrier's coverage maps, as native coverage when in truth it is actually roaming? Anyone have any ideas? Was this the only place in the country where Sprint was selling service as native when it was actually roaming and customers were not informed of that fact? Do the other carriers do this? Where? I would think customers and potential customers should be informed so they can make intelligent buying decisions and not risk being put under roaming restrictions say, 6 months after signing up for service with what they thought and were shown was a native carrier.
