    Default Force Roam

    Is there anyway to force roaming on the iPhone? My phone is jailbroken I'm just not sure what I can push to it...

    I remember on my android we were able to load up Verizon PRL's so that the phone would access verizon towers instead of Sprint. Is this possible with iOS?

    Even if it is possible, sprint more than frowns upon excessive roaming, they can even cancel your service. There is a percentage allowed for roaming. I want to say 50% of the time but it may be less.

    When I dumped AT&T and was looking for a new provider, I ran into the same problems. I live in the middle of nowhere and I was looking at C-Spire which was Cellular South. They had excellent coverage in the Memphis area, but the further out I went, the more I was roaming. The sales woman told me the same thing - if you spend most of your time roaming, they can cancel your service and slap you with an ETF.
