Hi, going to USA, bought add on text. Do I have to turn on roaming or I leave my setting as is? Is only for data that we turn on roaming?

I'd recommend not turning it on for picture messages (MMS) because if you do then your phone will use data for other things and then you'll need to pay for that data used.

MMS isn't included in roaming texts package. So no leave data roaming off.

Restart your phone when you get to the states and again when you return to Canada.
