Want to go easy on your operator bills? Here's how you can save on data roaming costs.

Data roaming means using your tablet to receive data over networks that your network service provider doesn't own or operate. Connecting to the web when roaming, especially when abroad, can raise data costs substantially. Your network service provider can charge you a fixed fee for data transfer or on a pay as you use basis.

To save on data roaming costs:

  • Connect your tablet to a Wi-Fi network. Using a Wi-Fi connection is generally faster and less expensive than using a mobile broadband connection. If both Wi-Fi and mobile broadband connections are available, your tablet uses the Wi-Fi connection.

  • Close the mobile broadband connection

  • Change mail download settings

  • Change sync settings
