    There's an option on the Android under network settings to allow the phone to roam on other networks for data. There's a warning when this is selected, that significant charges could be incurred. I assume this does not apply to me since I have that $99 unlimited everything plan?

    Take a guess
    You will not be charged, but be aware that there is a limit.

    Off-network Roaming on Sprint Phones: Not available with single-band phones, or to customers residing outside an area covered by the Nationwide Sprint Network. Sprint may terminate service if (1) more than 800 minutes, (2) a majority of minutes or (3) a majority of data kilobytes in a given month are used while roaming. International calling, including in Canada and Mexico, is not included in plans with no roaming charges. Roaming usage may be invoiced after 30-60 days. Data services and certain calling features (Voicemail, Caller ID, Call Waiting, etc.) may not be available in all roaming areas.
