iPhone Roaming data
You wonder if is it possible to get the iPhone to show how much roaming data you have spent within a given period. Or you don’t want to use roaming at all. For example, you are headed overseas and will want to use wi-fi but not the phone services. The answer is definitely yes. You can use default settings or apps from the app store.
Depending on what service provider you are using they should have an app on the app store that you can download free of charge and see how much data you have used and how much you have left, as well as any other data you may need. However, some carriers have up to one month delays on roaming data, so it’s kind of useless to use as a guideline for how much you are spending when you are on vacation and using roaming.
So the best and simplest way would be as follows:
Go to Settings – tap Cellular – tap the Data Roaming to change the setting, for example, to switch data off completely or to turn data services on.
This option shows how much data has been used with a separate entry for roaming. It also shows how much data individual apps are consuming. You can turn off any applications that are not needed. Of course, if turn them off, you’ll save data usage if you’re trying to keep it down. Even more, if you want to start monitoring data usage from a given point you may want to scroll down to the bottom and tap Reset Statistics.
To save money, you also can put you iPhone on airplane mode, and switch the data roaming and voice roaming to off.
Note that some of these options may look different depending on country and carrier.
