    I am going to travel from NJ to FL (Orlando, to be exact.. where Cingular says it has coverage) and am wondering if, in case I am roaming, it will show up on the bill?

    I have free long distance and free roaming as my plan, as long as free nights & weekends but am wondering if the bill will say "roaming" with a charge of "0.00" or if the words "roaming" will just not appear at all?

    Sometimes you will see a call here or there listed as "FMR" under call feature. This is "Follow Me Roaming". Sometimes roaming calls are listed that way, and other times there is no way to tell on the bill.

    yes it will show roaming minutes on your statement and it will say 0.00 next to it unless you were gone international.

    roaming is a term that has somewhat changed significance.

    in the past "roaming" would be leaving your region...

    now that there are nationwide carriers and plans (such as all of ATT's) the only time your "roaming" is when you are in an area that ATT doesnt have its own native coverage and "roams" on a carrier that does have native coverage in that area..

    for instance, a good portion of very Rural Alabama, ATT roams on old Alltel (PSC) GSM towers that are still in place.

    how do you know if your roaming? chances are you wont know...some phones however will show "GSM" on the phone..indicating roaming, but should not effect your ability to have service.

    All of FL is definete prime ATT territory and your coverage should be good, in fact Orlando is a 3G area actually.

    hope this helped.
