Hi Kim,

In order to enable roaming on your phone you need to do the following (depending on which version of Android your phone is running):

Select Settings - More... - then select the Data roaming check box (if it is disabled it should be unchecked) - once that is done, click on Network Operators and select one of the networks available.

If this didn't work then try selecting Settings then click on Wireless & Networks then Data roaming should be unchecked, click on it to enable the feature then click on Network Operators and select one of the options available to connect to. Keep in mind that once you have data turned on while roaming you will be charged a roaming rate of $5/20 MB.

I've provided a link below for more information about roaming rates and add ons for the US. (Be sure to click on Traveling to the US for more details).

Hope that helps :) if you have any other questions feel free to post them on this thread.
