Prepaid data roaming is the ability to use mobile data/internet on a foreign network when travelling to another country.
You do not need to buy a plan but you must enable data roaming. Just dial *100*9# and select option 1 as shown below:
There is no charge to enable data roaming.
Once data roaming is enabled, just top up, ensure the data roaming option on your phone is turned on and you’re ready to go! When you begin to roam, all charges are deducted from your core balance so you can keep track of how much you’ve spent.
To ensure that you can roam with data:
ANDROID: Go to Settings → Mobile/Cellular networks → Data roaming >> On as shown below:
Once you are data roaming, you will see the H+ in your notification bar as shown below:
APPLE: Go to Settings → Mobile Data → Mobile Data Options >> Roaming On as shown below:
Roaming with data in any GTT Zone, costs the same as using data at home. At $0.03GYD p/kb, roaming has never been so affordable. And the best part is you only pay for what you use! Switch your data roaming on and off so you use it only when you want to. Remember all charges are deducted from your core balance so you can keep track of how much you spend with no hidden fees and no bill at the end of your trip. To check your balance, just dial *100#.
Avoid unexpected data charges by switching off mobile data when you are not using it. If mobile data is switched on whilst you're connected to Wi-Fi, your phone could switch over to using the mobile data connection if the Wi-Fi signal is weak. When this happens, data charges as per roaming rates would apply. Also please note background app refresh is a feature of both iOS and Android that allows apps to update their content from the internet, even while you're not using them.
