Data Roaming On/Off on iPhone?
JohnnyDoe

Just curious if anyone has noticed a difference - but under Settings -> Cellular -> Roaming -> Voice Roaming and Data Roaming - do you have data roaming on or off??

Whenever I reset my network settings it defaults to being off. Has anyone noticed a difference in network speed or had data connectivity issues with it off? Does it even make much difference for domestic travel??

That is a great question, JohnnyDoe. We understand the importance of understanding how all your device settings affect your usage. I’d be more than happy to assist with this information.  Data roaming is strictly for international usage. If it is turned off it will not affect your domestic data, voice or text ability. It is fine to have your data roaming powered off. Your domestic service will not be impacted at all. I hope this information will be helpful. Please let us know if there is anything else we can address or assist with.

I am having an issue with this.  My phone sends me a message that I have lost connectivity because I left my house and do not have data roaming access turned on.  I even get this message when I am home.  I don't travel outside the US, how would turning this feature on effect my connectivity and billing?
