Sprint GSM is mainly for people who travel abroad but I was talking to a CSR and you can use it while you are in the States.

I doubt Sprint has any roaming agreements in place that would allow that, but it would be interesting to hear otherwise.

Of course, you'd first need a world phone, and most of the GSM phones Sprint is selling are not world phones - they will only work overseas because of the frequencies supported.

Even if you could use your Sprint GSM phone here, I believe you'd be charged "international" roaming rates, since that's the nature of Sprint's GSM roaming agreements.

Yes the GSM phones they use smart cards. The CSR was trying to tell me that The techs at the store are the only ones that can insert the cards.

Laughing Yeah, right. Rolling Eyes
