I have an Acer Android 5.1 and have a prepaid account. I purchased the US data roaming add on but I can't get it to work. We are currently in Mesa Arizona and my data is turned on. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Did you enable roaming on your phone as well, Lynne? You might also want to try to manually select the network and reboot your phone.

Select AT&T as the network manually and reboot. You should see "searching for service" as the handset boots, then AT&T as it comes to life. If your data connection was OK in Canada, it should work fine in AZ. Have done this with 2 phones so far (Android 4.4 and 6.0) with no problems.
