Should "Data Roaming" be left in on or off position?

Should "Data Roaming" be left in on or off position?   What exactly is "Data Roaming" anyway?

 

Thanks in advance! :smileyhappy:

Dear SandraW,

 

I believe this refers to the delivery to your phone of data (email, text messages, internet, etc) by a wireless carrier other than Verizon.  This would only happen if you are in an area that is not served directly by the Verizon wireless network.  This is similar to voice roaming, which has been around for many years.

 

Since Verizon's wireless network serves so much of the US, it is unlikely that you would need this service, but depending on where you live or travel regularly, you might.  As they say, though, "additional charges may apply"...
