    Everyone always talks about how great it is for sprint users to be able to data roam on verizon. will verizon users be able to roam on sprint towers. I'm a VZW user but it seems that recently sprint has surpassed VZW on both rollout of EVDO rev. a and general availability of EVDO rev. 0

    anyone know what vzw's data plans are?

    I think you've asked the million dollar question.

    Yes, i think its part of the agreement that VZW wireless are able to data roam with Sprint.

    The problem though is that it seems this agreement only covers 1x, no EV-DO.

    where did you see that posted? the sprint evdo signal is weak at my work, but verizon's signal is strong.

    Do you have the 700wx ? If u do, you are most certainly covered automatically. The thing is you have to force your phone into "roaming mode" because otherwise it will only pick verizon service if you are COMPLETELY out of Sprint service.

    Go to Settings - Phone - Roaming - Roaming networks only

    That's it. You should be able to make voice and data calls on vz

    Put it back to "Home networks only" when u back to an area that has good service.

    Kilim- i have the PDATP plan already. I just don't understand why VZW would give Sprint users so much when VZW users seem to get very little out of the agreement (or at least VZW users never talk about it)

    and also, someone was talking about the new Sprint Data agreement and said that there was a way to force EV....

    just kinda interested

    From what I have read others post...

    You can ONLY get 1x data service when you roam in VZW Network.
    Thats it.
