On Verizon's web site, it states:

National IN Calling
If Caller ID is not present or Caller ID Block is initiated, National IN
Calling does not apply to incoming calls and will apply to outgoing calls
only.

I just called them to get clarification on that requirement and was told
that it has changed. The CS rep said that all calls from one Verizon phone
to another Verizon phone are now IN and do not require unblocking Caller ID,
provided you are within the IN network calling area (see below)


When your indicator is off or the banner displays "Verizon Wireless": home
airtime rates and National IN Calling apply.
When the digital indicator is also on, digital features and services are
available.
When the indicator is off and the banner displays "Extended Network": home
airtime rates and National IN Calling applies. Other features and services
may not be available.
When the indicator is flashing and the banner displays "Extended Network":
home airtime rates apply. National IN Calling does not apply other features
and services may not be available.
When the indicator is solid or the banner displays "Roaming": roaming rates
apply. National IN Calling does not apply and other features and services
may not be available.

I just thought some folks might find this information useful, since I have
seen a few threads dealing with it but not mentioning the new status.

Why oh why cant there be just a little light or indicator on the phone that
states I will be billed for this call. I really don't care whose network I
am on, weather I am roaming, extended roaming or whatever the new lingo of
the day is. SIMPLIFY the mess please.

My humble opinion!!!!

The Extended Roaming Indicator is the closest thing you will have to a "you
will be billed for this call" signal. Usually it's accurate. No roaming
indicator means you're on a Verizon-owned network, you won't be billed roaming
and all of your digital features will work. Flashing roaming indicator means
you're on Extended Network, a system that is not owned by Verizon, and some of
your digital features may not work, but you won't be charged roaming. Roaming
indicator lit solid (not flashing) means you will be charged roaming and your
digital features will not work.
