Yeah, you dont get charged as long as you stay in your small allotted area. A friend of mine moved to a new apartment about 18 miles away from her old one and then got a huge nasty bill BC she was roaming with her minutes cut in half and NO UNLIMITED DATA. Seems that when she was roaming pulling 3G with her laptop (Sprint Laptop), and HTC phone she was unaware that she was pulling data from Verizon's network. Ooops...thousand dollar bill. Verizon may cost more but you pay for the huge network that doesnot isolate you to a small area.

Good luck even getting a GB of data use out of Sprint's slow network.

Well I have sprint service and I do get good service, I get 4g in my area and I use my phone to watch movies and hulu on my computer and I check my data usage and I have been using about 10gb every moth and I still pay $80 -85 a moth, my friend wanted to do the same with his phone a galaxy s3 verizon and passed the 2gb he gets every moth, well he paid $40 more for 3gb he passed plus the $120 evey moth, now i set my phone to hot spot so he can use my data.
