I feel I need to comment on this "Roaming" controversy. I was a CS rep for Cingular/At&t for 7 years. The issue of "extended" showing on a phone was because originally, At&t had regional plans that would charge domestic roaming charges. When they went fully "National" plans there were still customers with old regional plans who still needed the "extended" notification. Nowadays there are very few customers still holding on to those regional plans. I remember getting numerous calls on a daily basis asking "If I have a National plan, why does my phone show extended". It was easier to remove the "extended" tag at the time.
Just my $.02 worth. Take it as it is and feel free to pick at me for posting the obvious.
If I'm annoyed and you're annoyed, does that make us a paranoid ??

It's not a matter of if you win or lose, it's how you assign the blame
H20 wireless displays ATT as well.... It changed as soon as I activated.
When is the reciprocal roaming agreement going to take effect? I know it was a stipulation to go into effect if the merger failed. The merger has been dead for how long now?
I was in a dead spot for at&t yesterday. I showed 3 bars....checked settings and saw 310-260 (TMobile), however when I tried to make a call it said I was not connected to a network. Couldn't send text, etc. Is the roaming deal just not hashed out yet? I didn't think there was anything to hash. I thought that this is what it was, and it would just start.

I had a lot of AT&T roaming coverage in rural eastern Utah earlier this week on US-6 and Route 191 coming back to Colorado. My wife complained she had no service on her unlocked iPhone but I did on my unlocked Titan. That's when I realized the coverage was 3G only. (I had turned 3G off on the iPhone long ago to save battery, but the Titan has no 3G on/off setting.) My son, using a real T-Mo phone (an HD7) had no service at all, because the HD7 doesn't support 850 or 1900MHz 3G, only 1700 and 2100.
I didn't notice any AT&T roaming in this area last year, but none of us would have been using AT&T 3G compatible phones then, so we wouldn't have noticed even of there was. (My wife's iPhone would have had 3G turned off, and I was using an HD2 then.)

I thought that this roaming agreement would be fairly generous for both T-Mobile USA and at&t users, but it seems that this "agreement" is more or less the same as the previous ones. I'm more worried for my T-Mobile USA line than my AT&T line since there are places where the former doesn't even reach.

But unlike you i cant even get voice and data roaming on at&t. You're lucky to even get roaming coverage from at&t while my phones sit on *SOS* all the time, not useful for what I use a phone for.Originally Posted by ilvla2
