Carry-On Roaming

Affordable Smartphone Data packs that travel with you from only $8/day.

You can now Carry-On using your smartphone while traveling with complete control of your data roaming bill. No overages, no surprises.

Once you touchdown at your destination, your daily $8 Auto Pack will initiate as long as your phone is switched on and data roaming is enabled.

Your Auto Pack will help you keep in touch as you tour cities with maps, browse the internet or share pictures. The pack will conveniently renew every 24 hours, unless data roaming is disabled, to ensure you have the data you need.

If you had a busy day navigating a city, or streaming and sending videos to loved ones, you may receive a text to let you know your data is running low. Simply visit the link provided to purchase another $8 Daily Pack or a $60 Weekly Pack to ensure you have the data you need.

Carry-On Roaming FAQs

Do I need to add Carry-On Roaming to my account before I travel?

No. Carry-On Roaming is always ready to travel. When you arrive in almost any country with your phone’s Data Roaming setting turned on, the Carry-On Auto Pack will activate automatically. You will be charged $8 for the day and provided with a bucket of data to use however you wish.

When does the $8 Carry-On Auto Pack start?

The Carry-On Auto pack is activated when your phone’s Data Roaming setting is turned on and your phone is using data. The Carry-On Auto pack will charge $8, and you will have a bucket of data to use for 24 hours. When 24 hours is up, the Carry-On Auto Pack will automatically renew for another day, but only if your phone is still using data.

Does my phone use data even when I’m not actively using my phone?

Yes. Cellular data is often used by your phone in the background. Incoming messages or emails, App notifications, and other services will use data even if you aren’t actively using your phone.

If the Data Roaming setting on your phone is turned off, or you are connected to a WiFi network, your phone will not use any cellular data.

What happens if I use all the data included in any of the Carry-On Roaming packs?

You will be notified by SMS when you have nearly depleted any of the Carry-On Roaming packs, and then again when it has been fully depleted. All SMS notifications will include a link to a Web Portal you can access on your phone, where you can purchase more Carry-On Roaming packs.

If you decide not to purchase another Carry-On Roaming pack from the Web Portal, data roaming will be blocked until your current Carry-On Roaming pack expires.

What happens when a Carry-On Roaming pack expires?

Carry-On Auto and Carry-On Daily packs provide a bucket of data to use for 24 hours from the time they are activated. Carry-On Weekly provides much more data which can be used for 7 days.

When that 24 hours or 7 days has run out, the Carry-On Auto pack will activate again automatically. If you do not want the Carry-On Auto pack to activate again automatically, you can turn off the Data Roaming setting on your phone or use WiFi.

When you are ready, you can connect to a cellular network again and the Carry-On Auto pack will be ready to go.

When/How do I purchase more data?

You will only need to purchase more data from the Carry-On Roaming Web Portal on two occasions:

  1. You have used all, or nearly all, the data included in your current Carry-On Roaming pack before it has expired. In this case, click the link included in the SMS notifications to access the additional data options in the Portal.
  2. Your current Carry-On Roaming pack is going to expire soon, but you would like to purchase a Carry-On Weekly pack. Use the link in the SMS notification to access the Portal. This option will provide you with a lot of data to use for an entire week. Otherwise, let your current pack expire and the Carry-On Auto pack will activate again, automatically.
If my Carry-On Roaming pack runs out of data, will I still be able to visit the Web Portal?

Yes, you can still visit the portal to purchase more data.

Other types of data usage will be blocked until another Carry-On Roaming pack is purchased, or until your current pack expires and the Auto pack is activated again.

Can I choose which days to use the Carry-On Roaming service?

Yes. If you turn off the Data Roaming setting on your phone prior to your current pack expiring, the Carry-On Auto pack will not activate. Switch back to a mobile network when you are ready to use data again, and the Carry-On Auto pack will be ready.

Do I need to know which Zone I am in while roaming?

No. Carry-On Roaming will determine your Zone based on which Country you are traveling in.

Can I use the same Carry-On Roaming pack in multiple Zones?

No. For example: If you purchase a Carry-On Roaming pack in Zone 1, that pack can only be used in Zone 1. If you travel to Zone 2, another pack must be purchased.

View the list of Countries in each Zone before your trip, so you can make a Data Roaming plan.

If you turn off data roaming while a pack is still active, will it pause your data?

No, we recommend waiting until the pack is almost depleted or expired before turning off data roaming
