    We are looking for the icon at the top right-hand corner of the screen.
    It is a white cog icon. This is our Settings icon.

    This option is turned on in our demonstration, as we can see by the switch on the right side of the screen that displays the word "ON".

    The second option is "Slot 2 data roaming".
    We need to choose the right slot where the SD card is located if there is a dual SIM activated on the HTC One M8.

  15. 15
    Below each of the options, it says, "May result in significant data charges".
    It can be very expensive, but if we need to use data for whatever reason, or we need data because of an emergency, or we need access to our emails very quickly when traveling or away from WiFi, we might very well need this option. It is good to be able to turn the option on when needed and then turn it off when it is not needed. Therefore, we are not constantly being charged for it.

    The box will turn blue, and a check will be added.
    It will also bring up a warning message that says, "Turn on data roaming? Using a data connection while roaming can result in significant additional data charges."

    To accept this and proceed with this option, we have to press "OK".
    This means it has been confirmed. This can be very useful when needed, but it is always good to turn it off once we're finished using the internet or data roaming.
