TIPS – Data Roaming

1. Please note that data usage, internet browsing and / or content downloads during Roaming shall be billed pursuant to usage reports provided to us by our Roaming Partners ('RPs'). We will provide you with only composite details of their data usage on Roaming. Due to technical reasons, details of the individual sites visited and / or content downloaded will not be available from our Roaming Partners.


2. In case correct procedure of logging out from surfing session is not followed, connectivity with the server does not get terminated, hence leading to data transfer at frequent time interval. Hence it is advisable to log-out properly before terminating a session


3. Transfer of data depends on the APN selected in handset. Also note that for sites which involve live streaming, viz, YouTube, Viggo, Vu Clip etc, data routing will take place through Vodafone Live APN and not through Blackberry APN, as Blackberry does not support Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP), which is required to access sites involving live streaming


4. Free usage given in your local data plan is not applicable while roaming internationally.


5. If you prefer to not use any data plans while roaming internationally, you can get the same deactivated. However, this will not deactivate data services as data is a default service available on your account


6. You can certainly disable data from your handset itself; to avoid data usage while roaming internationally, please change your handset settings as mentioned below:

Settings - Mobile Network – Data Roaming - Disable


Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is the difference between TRIBAND and a QUADBAND phone and how does it benefit me?

Tri Band Phones
b. With a Tri band phone, you can make and receive calls on GSM 900, GSM 1800 and GSM 1900 (1900 MHz frequency band) networks. A Tri Band phone is required if you are traveling to North and South America and the Caribbean Islands.

Quad Band Phones
c. With a Quad Band phone, you can make and receive calls on GSM 900, GSM 1800, GSM 1900 and GSM 850 networks. A Quad Band phone is useful if you are traveling to North and South America and the Caribbean Islands where GSM networks work in the 850 and 1900 MHz frequency band.

3G Phones
d. You will need a 3G phone to roam on 3G networks – especially in countries like Japan & Korea which do not have any alternative GSM network.

2. Will I be able to access GPRS service whilst roaming internationally?

A. Yes, wherever we have a GPRS tie-up you would be able to browse the internet & access your emails. For knowing the details of our GPRS tie-ups please click here.

3. How can I avoid unnecessary calls whilst roaming?

A. You can avoid unnecessary calls by setting a roaming caller tune on your account. Keyword for activation of the roaming CT is CT Roaming to 56789

4. What if I want to avoid using data charges while roaming abroad?

A. Turn Data Roaming "OFF": - Turning "OFF" data roaming blocks email, browsing, and downloads, but it will not block text or picture/video messages/video calling.

To turn data roaming "ON/OFF" Go to <Settings>General/Mobile Network>Network>Data Roaming

5. What If I want to receive Email but block other data usage from my phone?

A. Turn off auto mails to OFF. Check email and sync contacts and calendars manually instead of having the data pushed to your handset automatically. This way you can control the flow of data coming to your handset.

To turn off the Auto-Check functionality tap on

Options>Settings>Email Settings>mails to handset>OFF

This functionality ensures mail flow to your Inbox but not on your handset.

6. How can I track my data usage whilst roaming internationally?

A. Reset the usage tracker to zero– When you reach overseas, smart phone users access the usage tracker in the general settings menu and select reset statistics. This will enable you to track your estimated data usage while abroad.

Disclaimer – Data Roaming

1. Additional PDP charges may apply with some operators. Note that this charge appears against 0 KB usage in bill.

2. PDP is Packet Data Protocol
When you want to use GPRS, your mobile will first attach to a GPRS enabled network in the country you are roaming and then your mobile will automatically activate a "PDP context". PDP context is essential for the visited network to authenticate you as a valid GPRS user. Some operators may charge for PDP context.

3. All GPRS (Vodafone live! / Vodafone Mobile Connect / Blackberry/IPHONE) usage at 10KB pulse

4. Prices are subject to change without notice
