Sprint roams fully onto Verizon with the only exception being the DC Metro on the negative list as of the last Sprint PRL I looked at. This is because the DC Metro has a fake MTA set up for it because Verizon wanted to control who could use it.
    Honestly i dont know specifics about PRL's but if i sounds like I was saying a PRL restricts tower by tower- sorry for that. I know it's nbroken down by some sort of region (called an MTA i guess is what you are exmplaining) so it could be just certain MTA's that are blocked up- but the real world plain and simple fact is you cant roam anywhere on verizon with a sprint phone.

    Try a new york city subway station. There is no in subway network like verizon does in DC- you just get service from verizon's 800mhz assets in NY and sprint phones just dont pick up that service. There are buildings I can get verizon service inside were i can't get sprint. Real world example- my partner lives off the beaten path in western NJ- we had sprint for many years- and he had ZERO service at his house. He would have no service at all the entire weekend. (rat B hid from customer emergenicies on weekends because he had no coverage- laughin) He switched to vz and he gets coverage now. So there's something that restricts sprint roaming on verizon in parts of NY/NJ for sure.

    When my Pre was trying to roam on VZW, I was prompted to enter a pin to access their network when making a call. I couldn't receive calls either. I did have my AT&T phone with me and had to use that. So there is something blocking Sprint users from using the VZW network.
