Prepaid us data plan. Can't get data to work


Am in the US. Android phone. Bought us boosters, got SMS and calls to work but can't get data to work. For that, I changed network provider in setting manually and then restarted the phone. Tried AT&T and T mobile. Data still not working. Also, my network icon top right showing full bar with R over it, not sure if that's roaming or restricted? Do I need to activate data roaming? Help would be great. Thanks Koodo!

The R means roaming, so you should be good to go. You will need to purchase a US data booster in order to use data in the US - I didn't quite get from your message if you bought one 🙂
I did get a data booster plan, but I get no data service? That no internet service. Only get internet when using Wi-Fi.

If you have data roaming turned off on your phone, you cannot access data outside Canada. So, yes, you will need to turn data roaming on.
