Hi

Just curious to know, since Wind Mobile has limited coverage?
What happens when we are in a no Wind zone?

Can we still make a call and get roaming charges? or we cannot use
the cell phone at all.

I mean if we are stranded somewhere and its not a wind zone, will the cell phone go completely dead with no network or we will be on roaming?

Please reply and thanks.

You will have "Away Zone" on your phone's display, and if you have credit balance in your account (assuming you will go with pre-paid option) you will be able to make/receive calls but that will cost as roaming charges.

My 2 cents..
Please remember that you will get charged even though you dont answer the call.
Inorder to receive the call, wind/mobilicity uses other networks hence they will have to pay to them which inturn passed on to you even though u dont answer but receive the call.

Do you know this for sure or are you assuming, or basing it on what other providers do.

I did have a similar experience with Rogers while roaming in the US. I chose not to answer the call and got dinged double the roaming charges. First to carry the signal from TO to the US and since I didn't answer the call, it went (rather came) back to my v/mail in TO.

I don't know if WIND does the same. Would be interesting to find out if they do somethig similar.

I was victimized already by mobilicity and inquired the wind for their policy and came to know that its the same
Being in telecom for long and could able to understand the charges and how the things work out for these resellers.
I stopped keeping the money in the wallet, hence i wont even receive call :-)
Just periodically check the voice mail from the land line where ever i am in roaming
