  • Data roaming may incur additional data usage fees. Enable anyway?

Faced with such a notice, it is normal for you to think that you may be charged for activating said service. Don’t worry, Vodafone doesn’t charge for data roaming usage .

The risk of activating data roaming is if you do it living in a border area (if you are not going to travel and you live in an area bordering another country), in this case it is advisable to have the data roaming service disabled .

In this case, your phone could connect to a foreign network generating additional charges, if the roaming service is not included in that country or we exceed the roaming limit in our rate.

All this is also valid if you contract a data rate for your Vodafone portable Wi-Fi router .
