When you wander outside the range of cell towers that belong to your carrier or have agreements with your carrier, you start roaming. If your carrier charges you for roaming, this can get expensive. In order to avoid accidentally being charged roaming fees, go to the Home screen, and then Settings > Wireless & networks > "Mobile networks." Make sure the box next to "Data roaming" is unchecked. As explained in Chapter 2, some problematic apps might override this setting. You can use APNdroid if necessary. Keep in mind that taking phone calls while roaming may be expensive for your voice plan, too. You may want to shut off the ringer and let all calls go to voicemail until you're back in signal range.
