    What part of Northern VT? Burlington has native T-Mobile coverage (as well as all along I-89), if I remember correcty, and over towards Newport, you'd roam on AT&T, but with no extra charges.
    T-Mobile’s new marketing campaign for Vermont and Western New Hampshire:
    “Try T-Mobile’s blazingly fast GPRS data network. We’re faster than iDEN and TDMA combined!”

    I did the last time I was there, but I think there are folks who have been to Canada since last September. You should have coverage in St Albans, even on AT&T. I remember roaming on Unicel with T-Mobile before the buy out up there.

    On which plan?? I received info that in NH, T-Mobile PAYG worked fine while roaming on Unicel GSM, but on the $3.00/day unlimited plan, a call could not be made at all.

    Note that I think the plan changes were made the same day, so I do not know if that had anything to do with the roaming not working with the $3.00/day plan.

    I put my T-Mobile prepaid on the $2 per day plan. Next time I am up at the Seacoast area, I will bring this with me. I thought Unicel had something to there.

    Well I was probably the one being referred to with testing Unicel roaming in NH. My problem is that trying to access the voice network on Unicel is intermittent. I spent some more time testing it, this time with the $2/day plan since that is what ptsun was asking. I was able to make roaming voice calls on the $2/day plan. So must have been some bad luck testing it last time. Of course this is the Verizon (x-Unicel) network in NH. The AT&T (x-Unicel) network in VT could be completely different. Probably not though.

    Definitely no data roaming on those plans (at least the several times I have tried).

    ...yet the prepaid coverage maps indicate prepaid data is available in the same areas as prepaid voice coverage in roaming areas, including Canada.
