    I know there are roaming charges for Data when you go over seas? Does that apply in the US as well when you phone is roaming? :confused:

    I have never seen roaming chargers on my bill and I am out of area quite a lot and use the phone A LOT!

    It's all on-network in the US. You're never roaming off-network.

    No, it doesn't apply to the U.S. However, if you cross over to either Canada or Mexico, you will be charged the "overseas" rates, so be careful if you live close to those areas.

    Actually this is only partially true, a convenient half-truth lie propagated by the marketing department at AT&T.

    Many, many places in the US have no proper AT&T coverage.

    In some of them, they have reciprocal agreements with other carriers. Although this is -- at first -- included in your monthly plan, this is not technically "on-network". If you travel extensively in such areas, you'll raise the ire of AT&T until they cut off your service. In other words, make sure that you don't rely on AT&T for anything mission critical. This is why I know carry a phone on another carrier.
