Perhaps you have already encountered a specific setting in your mobile phone called data roaming. Before activating this service, a pop-up message will usually warn you that it will incur significant charges. Unless you are willing to be charged some extra fees, you click on Cancel and move on with your phone tinkering. So what is data roaming, in case you are not aware of it yet?
For starters, data roaming occurs when your mobile phone continues to receive data from your current service provider even outside your coverage area (a.k.a. your country of origin). Data roaming in New Jersey or elsewhere around the world can be possible as well as making international calls as per an agreement between your current service provider and other network providers around the world.
However, be mindful that you will be charged a certain fee for using such services. On the other hand, data roaming can also occur domestically. For example, using your phone’s data to receive, read, and send emails as well as using the Internet can be considered data roaming.
How to Avoid Data Roaming Charges
No one wants to be charged more than what they usually pay for every month. While data roaming can be convenient especially during overseas travel, it can create a heavy impact on your budget. Thankfully, Android mobile phones would alert you when you are in “roaming” mode, depending on your mobile phone brand or unit.
Here are other tips you can consider to avoid getting bill-shocked due to data roaming charges:
Change your phone settings to prevent using another mobile provider’s services. This is important especially if you are conscious of your communication expenses. Check your user’s manual for the necessary steps.
Use Wi-Fi connection if there’s one available nearby. This is a less expensive alternative than using data roaming. Wi-Fi connections are common in public places such as malls, hotels, cafes, restaurants, and many more.
Make sure to restrict your background data when you are using data roaming. Somehow, it can help lessen your data roaming charges.
Consider investing in a Travel SIM or a local SIM card so you will be charged locally instead of by your current mobile service provider. You can also ask your current service provider if they have such SIM cards available.
Turn off data roaming and data sync. Make sure you don’t have any third-party apps that can override your settings. Better yet, you can rent a temporary mobile phone just for your overseas trip.
- If there is no choice but to use your data roaming, turn it on only when you need to use it. You can also set your phone into Airplane Mode if you want to have access to Wi-Fi.
