  • R = roaming as you found out
  • E = Edge, or 2g...its really slow but works in a pinch
  • 3G = 3g...still slow but better than Edge
  • H = HSPA, its a form of 3G just a lot faster...this was considered 4g before true 4g
  • H+ = HSPA+, same as above just faster
  • LTE = 4g LTE. its the fastest of the bunch.
R is for roaming. Maybe your network doesn't allow data on roaming?

How do I turn off roaming when abroad.


not sure if this is what you are after..
Before you head off abroad, check your network settings. To do this, go to Settings > Mobile Data. Next to Mobile Data Options it will say either Roaming On or Roaming Off. If it says On and you want to make sure you don't spend any extra cash on data while you're abroad, tap this and set it to off.24 Jul 2017

What is data roaming


Data roaming is simply cellular internet data but using out of your country. For ex. when you go on holidays to Spain you can use cellular internet from roaming. Roaming is for calls and sms too. And important thing is that roaming is much more expensive then normal in your country

My phone is saying digital roam mode when i make an outgoing call, how do i take it off so i can make outgoing call with no problem.


This is pretty much what you need to do. Just turn off all the roaming features. However when you roam it typically means you dont have service through Sprint so dont be surprised if when you turn off roaming capabilities your phone doesn't get ANY signal. Here's the link to your phones manual page 112 is about roaming.


Setting Roam Mode
Your phone allows you to control your roaming
capabilities. By using the Roaming menu option, you
can determine which signals your phone accepts.
Choose from two different settings on your phone to
control your roaming experience.
1. Press > Settings > More... > Roaming > Set Mode.
2. Highlight an option and press .
n Sprint Only to access only the Sprint network and
prevent roaming on other networks.
n Automatic to seek service on the Nationwide Sprint
Network. When Sprint service is unavailable, the
phone searches for an alternate service.
Call Guard
Your phone has two ways of alerting you when you are
roaming off the Nationwide Sprint Network: the
onscreen roaming icon and Call Guard. Call Guard
makes it easy to manage your roaming by requiring an
extra step before you can place or answer a roaming
call. (This additional step is not required when you make
or receive calls while on the Nationwide Sprint Network.)
To turn Call Guard on or off:
1. Press > Settings > More... > Roaming >
Call Guard.
2. Select On or Off.
To place roaming calls with Call Guard on:
1. From standby mode, dial 1 + area code + the
seven-digit number and press .
2. Read the message and press .
Note Call Guard is turned on by default on yourphone.

To answer incoming roaming calls with Call Guard on:
1. Press .
2. Read the message and press .
Data Roam Guard
Depending on service availability and roaming
agreements, yourphone may be able to access data
services while roaming on certain other networks. You
can set your phone to alert you when you are roaming
off the Nationwide Sprint Network and try to use data
services such as messaging.
To set your Data Roam Guard notification:
1. Press > Settings > More... > Roaming >
Data Roaming.
2. Highlight an option and press .
n Always Ask (default mode) sets your phone's Data
Roam Guard feature on. You will see a prompt that
will require you to respond anytime you access
data services while roaming.
n NeverAsk turns your phone's Data Roam Guard
feature off. Your phone will not notify you of your
roaming status when you access data services.
Touse data services when Data Roam Guard is active:
© When a notification appears informing you that data
roam charges may apply, press ROAM (left softkey)
to connect.
Note If the Call Guard feature is set to On, you need to
take extra steps to make and receive roaming calls.

Can my htc droid eris from verizon work on reliance india cdma connection


If you go here: http://b2b.vzw.com/international/Roaming/Asia-Pacific/India.html#network you can see that Verizon does have roaming agreements with CDMA providers throughout most of India, so I think your phone will work just fine.

Before you go, you need to dial *611 from your phone and have them activate International Roaming on your account. The rates are available on the link above, and they are quite expensive, so be aware of that before you go.

You should probably also disable Data Roaming on your phone before you go to avoid a massive bill, international data is extremely expensive.
