Going to China & Hong Kong - Data Roaming On or Off?


    I am going to China and Hong Kong and I have the simple choice plan. Do I need to change my phone settings from Data Roaming Off to Data Roaming On in order to get a signal in those countries?

        Data roaming should be ON in order to use free data roaming in 140+ countries. You can turn data roaming on or off by dialing #RON# and #ROF# respectively, or via settings on your phone. Roaming in China is 2G speeds. If you need higher speeds or need a lot of data, make sure your phone is SIM unlocked and seek to buy a local SIM for data while in China.
