Yeah, its the M1. When I force roaming and make a call, it still displays SPRINT.
yeah my RAZR says DIGITAL ROAM when i force or auto roam......
Hmm... That isn't very good IMHO. I wonder if Sprint know about it, and if their might be a software upgrade in the future for the M1?
Eh, who knows. I can live without the change.
This is part of the new Roaming indicator that comes with the 606** PRL. Sprint is doing what a lot of other carriers are doing by leaving the display showing "SPRINT" whether you are on the Sprint Network or Roaming with one of Sprint's partners (Sprint National Network). The way you know that you are Roaming is by looking for the Triangle icon at the top of the screen so you always know whether you are on Sprint's Network or Roaming.
This is the new normal for the new phones. Sprint is doing what a lot of the carriers have been doing for a long time. If you are on a Sprint Roaming Partner, you will have a Triangle at the top of your screen where the older phones have an R for Roaming. I think that not having "ROAMING" on the display makes people a bit more comfortable using their phones when on a Roaming partner. A lot of people do not understand the whole Roaming bit and when they see the words "ROAMING", they are afraid that they will be charged extra. It looks like that if you are using an International carrier, you will see the word "INTERNATIONAL" on your display. I have not seen that happen with the old "Digital Roaming" displays. I believe you will only see the "SPRINT" display when you are on the Sprint Network or a Sprint Preferred Roaming partner which is part of the Sprint National Network. In any case, if you are Roaming you will see the Triangle icon displayed. As long as you see "SPRINT" on your display and you have Roaming on your plan, you have nothing to worry about.
