Charged for Free Mobile to Mobile Minutes? (NOT roaming)


Charged for Free Mobile to Mobile Minutes? (NOT roaming)

Hi guys! I recently started service with Sprint just a few days ago, and I noticed that a few of my recent calls were deducted from my Anytime balance.

My plan has the free mobile-to-mobile feature attached to it.

I understand that if you use your phone while roaming, the minutes will be deducted from your Anytime minutes bucket.

The only problem with this in my situation is that I haven't been roaming. At all. My phone has stayed on the Sprint network since I activated the phone, and I haven't had any indicators on my iPhone 4S that I was roaming.

(That include the little dot thing next to the provider name in the notification bar. I've seen that before!)

It's pretty funny that this would happen, considering a few of the calls I made that were deducted from my balance were to Sprint customers!

Can anyone shed some light on why my minutes might be deducted in this case?

Thanks everyone!
