EU-Roaming - Roaming just in some countries

What I’d like to see:

an additional option to either enable just EU-Roaming or to select sime countries in which roaming should be enabled

How is the current situation:

Roaming is either on or off for all foreign countries.

Background:

  • You are traveling abroad near the borders of an EU-country and a Non-EU-country and have the usual eu fair use policy in your contract.
  • Don’t want to pay the (very) high prices for data link in the non eu country.
  • I now preselected a specific network operator, but that’s kind of workaround and not a real solution. Because SFOS could select another provider if traveling further.

I’m sorry if the formatting dies not fit: send from SFOS-forum viewer. It doesn’t seem to preview markdown.

I would vote for this! It’s a problem on iPhones as well.

The “free roaming in EU” has been extended by another 13 years, so this is an issue that will be with us for some time!

A blacklist of providers the phone shall not connect with, would be fine. So some non EU or too expensive networks could be excluded from roaming.

I’m sorry. Of course I searched but obviously I was not able ti find your feature request.

No need to say sorry :slight_smile: I only linked it here so we can know about this. As you can see right now there’ are 11 peoples that would like to see these features :slight_smile:

Another vote for this – not only for out-of-country roaming, but it’d also be useful when providers share networks (I’m with a smaller provider, which has an agreement with a bigger national provider to use their network, and I can use either; using the bigger provider’s network doesn’t count as roaming when billing).

I’d also love to see this feature, so count me as another vote for it.

Out of curiosity: is this possible on iOS or android?

No, this feature does not exists in android. Someone mentioned, that it doesn’t exist in iOS as well.
But why shouldn’t SFOS be some steps a head? :wink:
