Roaming: how to deactivate data abroad on Android?

Disabling roaming and data abroad on your Android smartphone is sometimes essential. If the package you subscribed to with your operator does not support the country you are traveling to, you could end up with a particularly salty invoice at the end of the month. In this quick tutorial, we will explain how you can deactivate data on your Android smartphone. 

Each package purchased from an operator, whether Orange, SFR, Free Mobile, or Bouygues Telecom includes a certain amount of mobile data or 3G and 4G data . These data can be used in France, in Europe and in certain foreign countries without additional cost. Before going on an adventure, we advise you to find out about the country included in your subscription with your operator.
