Enable or Disable Data Roaming on HTC One M8
Edited by Thor, Rushell, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to turn data roaming on and off on an HTC One M8.
To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the Power button located on top of the phone.
Once the phone has been activated, we will see the Lock screen.
To unlock the phone, press down on the screen and hold down until the two lock icons appear at the bottom. Then swipe up.
Once the phone has been unlocked, we will see the Home screen, and at the bottom of the screen, we will see several icons. What we now need to do in this video is find the Settings menu. To do that, we need to swipe the Notification panel down.
To open the Notification panel, press down at the top of the screen, hold down, then swipe down.
Now, we can see that our Notification panel has appeared.
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.
Press down on this icon, and it will open our "Settings" menu. As we can see, it says the word "Settings" in the top left-hand corner of the screen.
The first section of the "Settings" menu is "WIRELESS & NETWORKS", as indicated in the gray bar.
In that section, we are looking for the "Mobile data" option. To the left of this is the icon of two arrows, one pointing up and one pointing down.
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". Also, the two arrows on the left are green, which also indicates that the option is turned on.
Let's press down where it says "Mobile data" to bring up a list of options.
The first option says, "Slot 1 data roaming".
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.
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.
If we want to turn this option on, we can just press down on the box on the far right side of the screen across from desired slot option.
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.
To turn the option off, just press down again on the box with the white check inside. This will remove the check, and the box will be white again.
This concludes our tutorial on how to turn data roaming on and off on an HTC One M8. If you have any questions or comments about this video or about the process that you have seen in this video, then please leave them in the comment section below, and we shall answer them for you.
