    GPRS Domestic Roaming charges?

    I can't seem to find anywhere posted whether T-Mobile has any charges for domestic GPRS roaming. Their website is like a steel trap... rusted shut

    I have the Sidekick 2, the regular $20/mo data plan, and am now in Vermont on apparently the RCC/Unicel network (310-890). The last time I was up here I got GSM signal (quite rare for VT) and was able to use my nights&weekends minutes for free. However, I never got a data connection. Now, I'm back for spring break, and my phone shows a strong GPRS signal, but I'm a little nervous about paying through the nose for data roaming.

    Any insight? Thanks...

    Officially, I believe T-Mobile's policy is that they will charge for GPRS roaming. However, in reality, I don't think anyone has been charged for GPRS roaming.

    If your up in the Killington VT area, I know tmobile provides native coverage there, so you'll be safe. When I was roaming in Killington VT last Nov on Unicel there GPRS was on, but was not allowing me to roam on their data, but I hear their network is fully functional now. Back then I was roaming when Unicel was in it's testing stage for the network and open to roamers only so that is probably why I couldn't get on their data network.
