    Straight talk Roaming

    I have A straight talk Samsung SCH-R451C... I know it Works off the Verizon network.. Ok let me explain I go to a place that has no Service I dial 911 And quickly hang up before it connects... it gives me roaming service for about 10 seconds and then goes back to no service has straight talk disabled the phone from roaming other towers to only work on a 911 Call or is my phone not working right Plz Respond it works perfect around verizon towers area but no roaming is there a way to turn Roaming On???

    Straight Talk CDMA phones do not roam. By federal law a subscriber is granted the ability to make emergency calls on any compatible network available.

    That's a relief... Always worry about that.

    Wonder if you have the iPhone 4S or the Droid 3 "world phone" you could make a 911 call on pretty much ANY TOWER anywhere...

    With the SIM swap method used to get the iPhone on ST, yes it roams.

    Is the roaming good on AT&T? I would think so? Is it just like postpaid advertisements?

    Also would the 4s get the HSPA+ speeds that At&t adverts on ST?

    The roaming is decent....probably exactly the same as ATT post-paid within the U.S. Speeds will max out at 7.2 mbps down....more like 3.5G.....it is HSPA +........still pretty good, especially for the price.
