Yeah we just got a text about that ourselves earlier today from them. Pulled up the link but haven't had the chance to read it yet. Seems of interest, but then again, I'm not sure it will make a difference to those trying to actually keep a US phone number here, as I think the extreme roaming (percentage use factor outside v inside the country) may still trigger them to warn you and then ultimately terminate your service...

FWIW, just reporting back that one of our lines (surprise — the one for our teenager! ) has now gone over whatever the limit is considered to be for extreme roaming for the past few months and thus will now be terminated, in accordance with the user agreement. They gave us a cut-off deadline that's 5 weeks away (and say that cannot be adjusted), so at least it's a fair amount of notice. And this alert comes basically 5 months after we moved back here, so it's 6 months in all from the start of such roaming to cut-off (even in the hands of a teenager). None of our other 4 lines here have yet received such an alert, so those who are careful might well make it last a bit longer.

Hope this may be helpful to somebody down the road.
