    Gotcha. Have you tried going into the menus and updating the profile? I'm not sure where that would be on your phone, but it's under System Update on the Galaxy S3.

    I cannot update the profile as i get an error saying profile cannot be updated under gsm network, it requires a CDMA network.

    Okay so you're not even on a home Sprint signal. Get a signal from Sprint then try.

    Well then that's why you can't roam either. It's for Verizon partnerships in the US.

    It might be an issue if you haven't signed up for Sprint International Roaming. It's really expensive, I'd suggest that until you get back just buy a prepaid Sim there to use. It'll be waaaaaay cheaper than international roaming plans, and if you're unlocked then it shouldn't be a problem to get it set up.

    In that case it sounds a lot like whatever network you're on doesn't allow roaming.

    You should probably look at converting to an international ROM to get around stupid American carrier problems

    Ok, here's what likely happened. You manually downloaded and applied Android 5.0 by clicking Check for Updates on your phone. Samsung screwed up and for a brief time had a corrupted download version before they corrected it. Unfortunately, for people like me, the download caused issues including the loss of the Roaming settings.

    The good news is that Samsung developed a patch available on Google Play called "Refresh Customization". The bad news is that applying the patch will completely scramble your icons, folders, ... Samsung makes great hardware, but, their software is atrocious and this patch only serves to reinforce their legacy.

    If you apply the patch, your Roam settings will return. Just figure on spending two days restoring your phone back to something you recognize.
