    Default Why do I keep getting the data roaming warning?

    I get it especially when I'm on the train that I lost data connectivity. Is there a way to shut this off?

    I have all domestic warnings off and I still get it at home, too. I assume I connect occasionally and then disconnect again because when I clear the warning, it reappears 15 minutes later.

    Sorry to kick a dead horse in the face, but what needs to be changed in the Roaming Guard settings? Check them all or UNcheck them all?

    Both my wife and I have GS3s and get the roaming warning. I have tried the settings both unchecked and checked and seen no difference in getting warnings. Must be a bug.

    Thanx for the reply. I work in QA, and you gotta understand that it's only a "bug" if it's not doing what they wanted it to do...

    My guess is that those checkboxes are changing something else. I don't have the phone in front of me right now, but IIRC the name of that area is pretty ambiguous.

    I was also getting this warning messages while playing poker in a location with plenty of Sprint towers. I spoke with Sprint about this and they told me to go to Settings/More Settings//Roaming/Roaming Guard and uncheck the box for domestic data because we all have unlimited domestic data. If you have unlimited domestic voice, you can uncheck that also. Roaming guard is the option to give you warnings. This should stop the messages.

    Try going to system settings > phone update > and update your PRL and profile to see if this helps your roaming issue.

    Please be careful when doing this... You have unlimited data on sprints network. They do let you have.. "unlimited" roaming data but there is a catch with roaming data. If your roaming monthly data usage is more than 50% of your entire data usage for that month you can be terminated from service. Just check the TOS agreement on that. So if your roaming a ton be careful.. Remember unlimited on sprint... Some-what unlimited for roaming with that one catch.

    I was told by verizon tech support "after updating to version 4.11" that when your in a fringe area it prompts you to give you the opportunity to reestablish connection.
    If You simply leave it on global mode "allow access for all trips", it won't prompt you and you will not be charged if you don't have or subscribe to a global data plan.
    For verizon customers its best to put the "network mode" option to LTE/CDMA/EVDO

    However before you go out of country call Verizon to discuss your options or leave it on airplane mode during the trip.
