    Does WIND AWAY work in WIND HOME zone?

    I'm in downtown Ottawa and I get no Wind reception in my office building. My phone is on the Wind away network, but calls and texts do not work even tho I have an available balance.

    So my question is, does Wind away work in a Wind home zone?

    Customer has been terrible for me and I haven't been able to get any information from them at all.
    Managed to get Mobilicity to act and improve on 4 items.

    As a general rule it does not, but there are exceptions in certain pockets within Wind's Home coverage, and also along certain fringe zones. The shortest answer, however, is: No.

    It is not supposed to
    Only way I found to get AWS carriers to work regularly is with a non-AWS handset

    Travel to a known Away zone
    Pop SIM into a non-AWS GSM handset
    Let it register on network as roaming
    Travel back into Home zone

    On Mobi this worked great for low use clients (since they had the free 30 minutes roaming) but Wind doesn't have anything like that so remember all calls are then PPU
    It is sad I need to state the obvious but some people just don't get it. Any posts I make are my own OPINIONS and in no way represent the views of my employer
