When traveling internationally, you may want to turn data roaming on and off to conserve data and minimize unwanted fees.

  1. Note: Roaming allows you to continue your data connection outside of your main coverage area. You can set access to Data Roaming while you're on a trip. Data while you're in the US (including Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands) will be billed according to your data plan. However, higher charges will apply if you're traveling outside of those coverage areas.
