Customer Question
I am travelling to...

I am travelling to the U.K. and I would like to activate international roaming but cannot do so.

Technician's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

It is a mobile phone Apple 6s

Technician's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

I tried to activate it through an app on my phone. I am not very tech savvy. Sorry.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the equipment mechanic to know before I connect you?

That is all .Thank you

Hello and good night.

I wish you a safe flight and that all goes well when you travel to the U.K.

Activating roaming on your cell phone is quite easy, even for non-techies. Here are the steps that you have to take to activate international roaming:

(1) From the home screen, tap Settings.
(2) Tap Cellular.
(3) Tap Roaming.
(4) If Voice & Data Roaming is disabled, tap to enable.
(5) The device is now configured for international voice and text roaming.

Thanks for using JustAnswer. Please remember to select 3, 4, or 5 stars and click submit so that I can be compensated for assisting you.
Have a good night and a safe flight.
