Got my first Wind Mobile bill on the weekend and it says I was "data roaming" when I stayed in the Wind Home zone. It says the following:


WIND AWAY Zone + Roaming $7.64

I believe this is a bug. I was not in a Wind Away Zone. I spent the whole day of Thursday June 17, 2010 in East Vancouver, and Gastown, all of which are in the Wind Home Zone. Anybody else experience this? Is this really a bug? I'll contact Wind support but love to hear what others have experienced.
