    hello,, just a thought i came across.. i remember being in canada and verizon was available there on the highway...the one that begins when I-81 starts...i think its 401...yea so i was with my dad in canada on on my phone it said Verizon Wireless..i didn't have a blackberry at the time...so it was right on my screen....so why does it say verizon...and dont tell me it was Telus bc then alot further down the road when i got to Ottawa it was roaming of course...and i was like 2 hours from the border when it was saying verizon on my phone

    I was in Ontario in April and staying at the Hilton over the falls. In my Hotel room and in the general area, I had Verizon service. Once I ventured out a bit, it changed back to Rogers. I never stayed with verizon that far out though. but hey, if it says Verizon, then I'd be inclinded to believe you werent roaming

    If you zoom in on the coverage map near the US/Canadian border, it shows Verizon service for a decent way into Canada. My guess is that the carriers allow free roaming (or they have a SID there that maps to your home carrier) in case you live near the border, but pick up a foreign cell tower, you won't constantly get charged Canadian rates.

    Just a guess tho!
