    Did anybody know that if you don't have the roaming packge from sprint. You get charge $.50 per call. If you hardly travel or don't want to roam, there is no way to disable roaming on the phone. There for either you pay $5 for the package or $.50 per call. I just had an argument with customer support regarding roaming charges.

    rtfm: Simply don't select the "digital roaming" option from the phone menu and you will never roam and either stay on the Sprint network or loose the signal altogether...

    I had it uncheck, and still had to pay for roaming. According to Sprint, I cannot make any calls, but still can received calls. I know it does not make any sense, but that is what they told me.

    That does not make sense... When I deselect the "digital roaming" option, I don't get any connection to a roaming network (inbound or outbound). You can also tell by looking on the top left, it says SPRINT or ROAMING or NO SERVICE.

    Other thing you can do to make things sure sure, is to set a special ringer type for roaming calls and just ignore those calls.

    If you are sure that the option was off, I would really question Sprint's billing system...

Anybody has an explanation of how that happened?

    I believe Sprint has roaming partnerships with certain overseas CDMA carriers. For example I believe you can roam on you Sprint CDMA handset in certain areas of Mexico City and etc. Most likely there is a Peruvian CDMA partner that Sprint has a relationship with and thus your Treo was able to roam. However be forwarned, international roaming rates on Sprint are astronomical!!!
