Save on data roaming costs

Looking to reduce your phone bills? You can decrease data roaming costs by modifying your mobile data settings. Data roaming refers to using your phone to receive data over networks that aren’t owned or operated by your network service provider. Connecting to the internet while roaming, particularly when abroad, can significantly increase data costs. Your network service provider may charge you a fixed fee for data transfer or on a pay-as-you-use basis. To use the most efficient connection method, you can change the Wi-Fi, mobile data, and mail download settings.

Using a Wi-Fi Connection Generally, using a Wi-Fi connection is faster and less expensive than using a mobile data connection. If both Wi-Fi and mobile data connections are available, your phone will use the Wi-Fi connection. To set this up, swipe left on the start screen, and tap ‘Settings’. Then:

  1. Tap ‘WiFi’.
  2. Ensure ‘WiFi networking’ is switched to ‘On’.
  3. Select the connection you want to use.

Stopping Data Roaming To stop data roaming, tap ‘mobile network’, and switch ‘Data roaming options’ to ‘don’t roam’.

Tip: To save on data costs when travelling, download new maps to your phone before your journey, and browse the maps offline. If you’re running low on space, you can remove some maps from your phone. This way, you can keep your phone at your service while also saving on your phone bills.
