    Are you travelling anywhere near Canada or Mexico? If not, turn on wireless data roaming. There are NO charges anywhere in the continental US for roaming, but if you pick up a Mexican or Canadian tower you'll get nailed hard.

    So if i am on a nationwide plan, even though it says "you may incur significant data roaming charges" I'm okay?

    Correct. Verizon only charges for out-of-country roaming. Means I'm SOL because I live 30 minutes from the Canadian border, but if you're going from Memphis to Nevada, for example, there's no problem. :)

    If you have any questions about it give Verizon a call. If they tell you anything different I'd love to hear it so I can compare it to what I've been hearing.
