    Ok so I read that sprint has a 300mb cap on roaming and if u pass it u pay 25cent per mb is this true I have used 272,000 kb with 13 days left in the plan =\ in the last 3days it went from 76mb to 272mb when I did a prl hack that put my prl at 00001 it was a hack that improved my data speeds dramatically Im talking 200-300kb to 1300+ see my thing is that I have an unlimited plan and on my account it says 272,000 out of unlimited roaming can they actually charge me for this ?

    i do not think that they will charge you but you can read this thread:http://androidforums.com/evo-4g-all-things-root/337563-here-goes-nothing-trying-get-vzw.html. mr ed eventually got the boot from roaming charges.

    that is up to you, you know now that you do run the risk of getting booted. you can just keep track of your roaming data. but it is a good way to get out of your contract with no early termination fee.

    my sprint rep says that I can have up to 5 gig of data roaming. And even then they probably wont say anything. I never get close to that anyway.:)

    I roam a lot. And I don't think Mr. Ed got any fees from sprint with his roaming on the verizon prl.

    Careful, in Mr. Ed's post on the thread up there a ways (vzw prl ... getting kicked off ect.) he has a scan of his termination letter, and I think it said you need to have less than half data be roaming. More than half, and you can get canned.
