I understand that the phone will show when you will incur the 20 cent per minute roaming charge, but when I tried to see what my prepaid calling area vs the roaming area it looked like most of the country was "pink" I am finding that hard to believe. I am in 585 area code, does the area usually just include local area or is it really almost all included thru the whole U.S.?
It's been 2yrs. since I was on prepaid for like 8yrs. and I used my prepaid phone all over while traveling from NY to Ohio, Pa and even in Florida and I never incurred any roaming charges, it just used up the regular minutes I bought. The only time it was a little more was when we were across the border in Canada. I don't know if it's different now with prepaid but that was my experience. Mary
