    I get bad reception on campus, and my Epic wants to data roam. I guess it's on Verizon's towers?

    Should I let it? I think it's free but I figured I'd ask here first. I'd call Sprint but I cannot make calls right now since I am in the lab.

    Yes, let it.

    The only thing to keep in mind is that if you do a TON of roaming (compared to normal data usage) that Sprint may cancel your service.

    Sprint has a 300mb limit of data roaming...

    Voice/Data Usage Limitation: Sprint reserves the right, without notice, to limit throughput speeds, and to deny, terminate, modify, disconnect or suspend service if off-network usage in a month exceeds: (1) voice: 800 min. or a majority of minutes; or (2) data: 300 megabytes or a majority of kilobytes. Prohibited network use rules apply. See in-store materials or sprint.com/termsandconditions for specific prohibited uses.

    Not to worry unless it is excessive (300mb are what some are saying). I have 5-10 mb's of roaming data on bills from time to time (maybe more) and have never been charged for roaming (of any kind) on Sprint.

    So have most of you gone into your settings and set it to always allow data roaming without asking first?

    Yes. I allow roaming on both voice and data. And, disable the roaming notifications.
