    If you're a Verizon customer, it means you're not on a native verizon tower - but it's not costing you anything... unless you're near the Canada border, and picking up a Canadian provider...

    Similar situation with Sprint... it means you're on a non-Sprint network, and should not be costing you anything.

    usually extended on the sprint network means you are roaming on a verizon tower. they have voice roaming agreements with each other. happens all the time on my work iphone also on sprint.

    Yeah it should only be with Sprint, but no roaming charges should accumulate from it.
