How do I manage my data overseas?

International roaming (using your normal phone / SIM while overseas) is expensive, especially for data. Each service provider will have different options for you, so check their website for details. Some options include:

  • You can turn off data roaming in Settings if you don’t want to incur any data charges
  • You can then purchase a prepaid SIM card when you have reached your destination
  • Or you can only use data when you’re in a WiFi area - these are more and more common
  • Purchase a “Data Roaming Pack” from your service provider before you leave
