    I travel to Las Vegas frequently. How does the America's Choice Plan from Verizon work there? Roaming?

    I am in LV quite a bit. The Verizon coverage is quite good but you will find a few weak or dead spots - the tourist/business areas have good coverage.

    from what ive heard sprint's coverage in las vegas is almost impeccable.....so if you can roam on sprint there as part of the AC plan you should be ok if verizons network is not up to par.....i have no idea how it works out there (verizon's network and spcs roaming)

    Excellent coverage at the airport and good coverage on the strip but inside the hotels tends "iffy." As long as you're in a room with a window ok but a lot of the meeting rooms have too much concrete and steel to penetrate. Sprint has good coverage in the business and resort areas but has converage issues in some of the outer residential areas.

    Joe,
    Over the last few years, both Verizon and Sprint PCS have installed cell sites inside several casinos and the Convention Centers. Verizon has 7 and Sprint, at my last count, had 5. I only know the names of a couple from an old Verizon press release. IIRC, only a few of those are duplicates. Most casinos that do not have a cell inside already have good service from outside.

    Both companies have worked hard to cover Vegas very well. The only time i lost Verizon was having lunch below ground level under the Coke bottle. (Gee, that sounds odd...)

    And Sprint has been adding cell sites in the outskirts to cover residential areas.

    So I would get "Verizon Network" or "Extended Network".... I just want to make sure I don't get Roaming.

    Thanks everyone for your generous feedback.

    you shouldnt get any roaming.......and if you do it is a mistake call CS and from what ive heard from other verizon users they will take it off your bill.....Las Vegas is considered a part of the AC plan so any roaming in it is an error.
