i just entered the states and have the unlimited 30day add on. is there anything i need to do? i'm getting calls and texts fine but do i need to avoid or use roaming? this confuses me. i don't want to change a setting and then get a giant bill. 
thanks

There's no avoiding or using roaming manually on your part. So long as you're connected to a roaming partner network you're golden. Since you've been texting and calling without issue, you're fine. The only thing is if you don't have data as an add-on don't enable roaming data use, as that setting change will most certainly give you a large bill!

ok, thank you. my phone has a roam/don't roam setting. i'm pretty sure it's always set to don't roam. can i leave this or do i switch it on?

Which phone do you have? I just want to make sure that setting is specifically data. But if you're able to talk and text without issue, then I'd just leave it as is. Did you happen to get the add-on with data?

Lindsey as you mentioned you have picked an add-on with 750mb  of data included. You paid for it so you might as well use it. You can track your usage so you keep within your allotted amount.

In other words, activate data roaming in order to use it! As long as you don't go over, you won't be charged
