In the school office, I looked down and realized I was on 3G...a quick check of SCP revealed I was on Verizon.

To test this, I had to stream some audio to keep it roaming and I did a drive by of two sites locally where I knew Sprint and Verizon were on separate towers about a 1/2 mile apart .Sprint had Verizon EVDO roaming on individual accounts in southern Ohio when I was there just last year. Verizon probably didn't charge any more for roaming EVDO since the data allotment didn't change. I then dropped off my daughter's school bag at our local school in central NJ.Sprint had Verizon EVDO roaming on individual accounts in southern Ohio when I was there just last year.

It doesn't give any information about who I am roaming on unless I dial an invalid number which plays the "welcome to Verizon Wireless" message Sent from my i Phone using Tapatalk interesting development if true.

i dont have an easy way to test since USCC is so big up here i dont know how to force verizon.

Didnt Claure say he wanted to stop paying verizon so much each month? Possibly Verizon just wanted to monetize their EVDO network more now that so many users have been moved over to LTE for them. Either this is a mistake of sorts (which I am very doubtful of), Verizon lowered the price of roaming for Sprint, or Sprint customers just haven't been roaming as much as they used to so Sprint feels more comfortable opening up Verizon EVDO roaming for their customers because it won't cost them as much.

I found that I got -50s RSSI signals on both going by the respective towers. I then dropped off my daughter's school bag at our local school in central NJ.

Also, I never changed 1x sectors when going by the site with the stronger EVDO signal which told me that Verizon was elsewhere. Normally, the school is a dead zone for both Sprint and T-Mo (I have Project Fi).
