***Announcement: Welcome to the new Verizon Community! We have merged our Wireless and Fios Communities to bring you the best place to discuss any Verizon product or service, along with all things tech! We have many new features to discuss with you in the coming weeks, but first we want to make sure that all of you who have been active on either of our communities before are able to log in! For many of you, we have been able to merge your Wireless and Fios community accounts so all of your Community contributions are all in one place. If you were active in both communities and you previously used the same My Verizon account to log into both, you’re all set! You will be able to use those same credentials to access the new Community. If one of those accounts was with My Verizon and the other was a Community Member Only account, please use your My Verizon account to log in. Please note that we were only able to merge those accounts that were attributed to the same email address. If you only had one account on either Community, you can log into that account exactly as you have before. For some of our Fios Community members, you may have an issue logging in. If you had an account on the Fios Community and you’re having login issues, please use the Community Member Only login page and use the “Forgot my info” link to reset your password. Once you complete this, you should be able to log in normally. If you continue to have any further issues logging in, please email us at verizon.community.team@verizon.com and we’ll assist you to get you back in the Community! Keep an eye on the Community announcements - we can’t wait to show you what’s in store. The Verizon Community Team
roaming charge

I understand that the phone will show when you will incur the 20 cent per minute roaming charge, but when I tried to see what my prepaid calling area vs the roaming area it looked like most of the country was "pink"  I am finding that hard to believe.  I am in 585 area code, does the area usually just include local area or is it really almost all included thru the whole U.S.?

It's been 2yrs. since I was on prepaid for like 8yrs. and  I used my prepaid phone all over while traveling from NY to Ohio, Pa and even in Florida and I never incurred any roaming charges, it just used up the regular minutes I bought.  The only time it was a little more was when we were across the border in Canada.  I don't know if it's different now with prepaid but that was my experience.  Mary

Yes it will let you know when your roaming and yes they cover just about the United States. If its all pink your your covered the white spots will tell you that area is a roaming area.
