Roaming on or using Verizon's network???
I posted before that I may need to leave sprint because I am not getting service in my neighborhood. Verizon does work in my n-hood so I thought maybe I would switch to them.
Several ppl commented that I should be able to roam on verizon or use their towers or something (not sure if I understand it exactly).
But, apparently that's not happening since I am not getting service. I have an airave for the house...but if I go for a walk or am out with the kids I cannot use data or make/receive calls.
Can someone tell me what my settings should be to be able to get on verizon's network??

If you are in a fringe area where there is enough of a Sprint signal that it does not switch to roaming there is nothing you can do (unless you can convince all of your neighbors along your walking route to get Airrave's too ;-) ).

You could try the Verizon pri hack but rumor has it after a while sprint kicks you off contract because of excessive roaming. They have to pay Verizon when you roam thus costing sprint more to keep you. Maybe you should take a look at some Verizon plans since you get better coverage in your area.

Roam Control works great for me. I live in a small little black whole where really nobody gets good service. I get 0 to 1 bar on sprint which is almost useless, selecting roam only in Roam Control gets me 1 to 2 bars of 1xrtt on a Verizon tower. By no means stellar but it allows my phone to get my gmail and I can make and recieve calls at home.

I haven't tried Roam Control, but it sounds like a good solution. As long as you aren't looking to download a ton and only want to have cell service so you can get a text or a call when you are outside of your house (off the airrave) then this could be a good solution. It's at least worth a try.
