    Roaming is a term commonly used by mobile phone users. It means that when a mobile phone user leaves the state or country of residence, a service in which mobile phone users can continue to use their mobile phones in other states or countries.

    Actually ... it means that your carrier has no tower wherr you are, but they have a contract with a carrier to allow their customers to use the tower of that carrier. The only reason it shows (unless that's still the practice in other countries - it's no longer the practice in the US) is that you used to have to pay for roaming, usually by the day (in other words, if you used X carrier's tower for one call, one text or downloading one email, you'd pay for a day's usage [as well as for texts, which were charged separately, and it counted against your monthly limit of calls - no unlimited voice back then].)

    These days, in the US, it's about as important to you as the temperature inside Vesuvius at the moment..
