FAQs

1. Should Data roaming be kept on or off while roaming?

When you are roaming, especially internationally, you may incur some roaming charges on top of your data plan. It can get expensive, so your phone provides a way for you to stop using your mobile data when you are roaming. Considering your phone also uses mobile data in the background for backups and downloads, it’s better to turn off the roaming in case you are roaming internationally. But if you prefer to use mobile data, you have to enable it and also be ready for that bill.

2. Should Data roaming be kept on or off while not roaming?

If you are not roaming, it does not make any difference whether you keep it on or off. But when you move out later, your phone will start using the data even when you are roaming.

3. Are there any additional charges for domestic roaming?

It may differ from country to country. In most countries, there will be no additional changes when you move to another state inside the same country as long as the area is covered by your service provider. However, you cannot use mobile data even when you are domestic roaming. Nonetheless, you can enable the Data roaming option and use the data without any additional changes.

Data Roaming on Samsung and Android

Using mobile data while roaming might result in additional charges. So your phone has roaming settings to stop you from accidentally spending more. Nonetheless, you can enable the data roaming option on your Android phone to take advantage of the mobile data. You can also turn it off and use other forms of the internet like Wi-Fi, so you won’t be charged extra by your carrier just for traveling somewhere.
