I accidentally turned on data roaming while in my home country. Will I get charged for this? I attempted to send a picture through WhatsApp but it did not send. I have a Samsung Galaxy with 300 MB

Well, if it connected to the cell tower and used data, then yes, you will be charged $5 per MB (depending on the country you're in). Let's hope it didn't work :)

Edit: here is where you can calculate your cost:

You need the international roaming add-ons that enable roaming first actually.

If it didn't send then you likely didn't have the add-ons enabled for roaming.
