    How to stop HTC Windows Phone 8X from claiming charges while on roaming?

    I am not sure whether data roaming is activated on my HTC Windows Phone 8X handset; it is claiming data charges while I am travelling out of the network. Can you please share with me the relevant steps to be noted to stop claiming data charges?

    You are supposed to disable roaming option so as to stop device from claiming data charges. First reach the start screen by unlocking your device. The screen must be swiped to see the ‘Application’ list. The settings section can be reached by going for the ‘Settings’ option. Followed by that, you are supposed to opt for the ‘Cellular’ option. Now you will get the view of ‘Data roaming options’ label on the section. The sub menu of this section is supposed to be selected now. Finally you must hit on the ‘Don’t roam’ option.

    You have option in your mobile handset entering which you can disable the Roaming Option.

    Start--Application--Setting--Cellular--Data Roaming, disable the option from here.

    So far the information available, from March 2013, roaming was supposed to be abolished by TRAI, and supported by Govt. of India. As it was declaired by Kapil Sibbal, minister Telecom, in parlament.
    So talk to the customer care to know the exact situation.

    According to Times of India on 23 rd Nov 12, DOT has suggested in internal note this abolision of roaming charges.

    hiiii...
    If you are on roaming, you have to disable the Roaming in cellular data settings to avoid the extra charges as free roaming is still under progress.
    Swipe through the tiles and select settings.
    Then in Internet/Cellular data settings, An option is present as Data Roaming.
    tap there and select "disable".
    And Done!!
