'dem's the breaks, I suppose.

So, given an unlocked WIND device, since they seem to have compatible 
frequencies with Roger's, and take SIMs, I can stick my Roger's SIM 
into one and get on with my day?

WIND isn't falling over to other provider when outside their network?

Voice over (Android) wi-fi is practical these days? (Assuming, I 
guess, a reasonably working g connection, I suppose.)

I'm guessing there's no auto-fallover mechanism yet, off cell network, 
attempt to reach you via wi-fi? (Calling out would just work, wherever 
you are, preferring wi-fi over cell I would hope. Assuming any 
connection at all. Not so, incoming?)
