    My worry is that if I have data data enabled while roaming will I incur a cost? I know theres no extra charged if my phone makes voice calls on other networks but what about data?

    well by default the droid turns data roaming off. As far as ive heard there are no additional charges for data roaming....but even if that is a lie data roaming is already off when you get your phone and if you turned it on and got charged its your own fault.

    I just talked to verizon and she said there wouldn't be any charges for using data while roaming. She said it might be slower but there woldnt be any charges.

    I don't know about that. I did some web browsing on my phone when I was in Toronto, and I had data charges that month...

    Well the kid asked about any kind of roaming...it is pretty hard to enter roaming while you are in the US...Verizon is everywhere.

    I apologize for wasting space if everyone already knew this...

    There is no roaming within the US. Once you go across US borders, there is an international charge. There are plans for that, however... otherwise there should no be any other kind of geographical fees that would go along with you anywhere inside the US.

    I asked the question because I'm old enough to remember (yea - 10 years ago) when there were MANY spots in the USA that were "roaming" areas! Right here in Jersey we had two sections within 10 miles of me. I just wanted to clarify that times have changed...

    By the way - Hawaii is not roaming for VZW. But British Virgin Islands is. Don't ask me how I know! ;) mike
