    I have a question about data usage while roaming. Multimedia messages are the same as data, thus I cannot send a picture message while roaming (I have my phone set to reject data if roaming). But sometimes I do not notice the roaming signal until after I hit send. If this happens, my EVO will continue to try to send the message, and will alert me of the failure every couple of minutes. Is there a way to stop this from happening? In other words, if I try to send a picture message, and I am roaming, is there a way to put the whole process on hold until I get a full signal again? It is very annoying to have it keep beeping at me. The only way I can stop it is to put the phone on Airplane mode. But then I can't do voice calls, or send and receive regular texts. Does anyone know a solution to this problem?

    Why are you afraid of roaming?

    Because Sprint can cancel your contract/service if you use 300mb of roaming in a month.

    OP...my only suggestion would be to not press send if your in roaming!

    For the exact reason ScorpDX mentioned.

    Sometimes I don't notice the roaming icon, and I will be looking out for it in the future. Sometimes I am just rushing, and I hit the button, and bam, there I am roaming, and am stuck with the phone constantly trying to re-send it. I guess that is the best bet, to just be more aware of my status. Thanks for the response.

    What he said.

    And unlike what the other guy said, it's 450MB, not 300MB. Also, that's a lot of data to pull down when roaming. Unless you're constantly roaming I wouldn't even concern myself.

    From Sprint.com
    And that's not a lot of data at all. For those of us that actually use the phone a lot it won't take long at all to add up that kind of usage.

    I'll have to find where they said 450MB, it was on their site. Regardless, it is a lot of data when 95% of all roaming available is via Verizon 1xRTT, not even 3G.
