    So I'm flying to Oregon from California. Will they charge me roaming for using my data or for phone calls? Or does that apply only out of the county? Thanks. Sorry if it's a dumb question but I'm not sure about this.

    was NYC...now MIAMI
    sort of stupid question, if you haven't made a phone call out of your immediate area in the last 10 years - i remember when i was younger if you called out of your immediate city you were calling long distance, you don't have to worry about it now ---- turn off data roaming and then you can be sure you are NOT DATA ROAMING, have a wonderful rest of the weekend, wherever you are from!!!

    Not a dumb question, ainjo1919.

    No worries: you won't get any roaming charges.

    None of the major cell phone carriers in the USA charge roaming in any of the 50 states.

    I was pretty sure that they didn't charge out of state, since I went to Puerto Rico 2 years ago and they didn't charge me any roaming, since it's still part of the USA. I only asked because my sister said that they probably do charge so she left me in doubt. I'm with AT&T btw.

    Well thanks for the answers and the wishes guys.

    Nope, if you can get a signal in the US, you will not be billed roaming charges under AT&T. that only happens if you leave the country.

    For the most part, out of state roaming is a thing of the past. Only mom & pop carriers still do that, and there are fewer and fewer of those types of carriers nowadays.
