This was about a year ago and I had free roaming minutes. I arrived into town about 5 am. When i tried calling I got some message about getting a hold of your customer service or something to that effect and could not make a call. I know since then the plans have changed and you don't have a certain number of roaming minutes, but I am wondering if I go down there to visit again if I am going to have this type of problem again. also a couple weeks ago when I was in the dells. I lost signal well outside of the dells when the map says I should easily have a signal. Once my ascend 2 comes i hope reception will be better then my 2 1/2 year old messager 1, lol
