    1st day with the new Pixel 3 XL. It already updated itself. After waking it up, in the upper left portion of the screen in the notification area, I'm getting a scrolling "Roaming Indicator Off" up there. When I pull down the quick settings, it appears there too. I'm not able to figure out how to get rid of the notification. Not just that, but I'd like to know if and when I'm roaming, if the notification is indeed correct that the roaming indicator is off. It's weird. I'll try posting a couple screen shots. Toggling the roaming toggles in the network settings doesn't affect the notification.

    How about that pen looking thing I circled what does that do?
    The other I circled if you long press?

    long pressing that roaming indicator doesn't do anything. Pressing on the pencil allows you to edit the quick settings choices

    And swiping probably just mute it

    I'm going to call my carrier tomorrow. Don't think it started until after I activated the phone.

    Under network settings, if you click on mobile network, is roaming on or off? Does it change anything if you switch it?

    Who is your carrier?
    Does this also happen in Safe mode?

    That's where the carrier name should be. So, looks like your carrier is called 'Roaming Indicator Off'

    Roaming is toggled "on". Nothing changes when I toggle it "off"

    On restart, it briefly does say US Cellular there in the upper left notification area before changing to a scrolling "Roaming Indicator Off" message.

    Remove and re-install SIM?

    Or go into mobile network, advanced, and update device configuration?

    Removing and reinstalling SIM didn't work. Now I'm on your 2nd method, but what do you mean "update device configuration'? I don't see that option under "advanced"
