Hi, My XE is showing a notification, well some of a notification. The whole message wont come up on the screen. When I tap the message it just heads off to another screen and I can't work out what the message is notifying me about.

The message says, 'Data Roaming - You have lost data connectivity because you left y' and the y is half faded behind the time of the notification and I can't read the rest of the message.

When I tap the message it sends me to the 'mobile network settings' page of which there are sections on Data Roaming (which I think is the section the phone is telling me there is a problem), Data roaming sound, access point names, network mode, network operators, enable always-on mobile data.

The settings I have these on are:
Data roaming (connect to data service when roaming) - unchecked
Data roaming sound (Play sound when connecting to roaming network) - checked
Access point names (this is a heading)
Network mode - GSM/WCDMA auto (other choices are WCDMA only or GSM only)
Network operators - Vodafone AU
Enable always-on mobile data (uses more power on some mobile networks) - unchecked.

I am in Australia, using Vodafone, have not been anywhere roaming and don't want to roam for calls or data. I've had the phone for 4 months or so. It is running android version 2.3.4 HTC sense version 3.0

Hope this is enough information!

Initially I would like to know what the phone is trying to tell me in the notification message. Secondly I would like see if I can select a setting so it does not keep on telling me.

Cheers

Next time turn your phone sideways (landscape mode) in order to view the entire message.

I keep the "enable data roaming" checked all the time, but then I have unlimited data transfer with T-Mobile. If you are on a budget, you may wish to disable it - it could add up to extra charges.

Thanks for the quick reply. I did try holding the phone in landscape mode but it does not change to landscape when I dragged down the notifications tab.

I have, however, now worked out how to do that! I tapped the calendar app and put that in landscape then dragged down the notifications tab.

The message is now longer but still not the full message.

'You have lost data connectivity because you left your home network with data roaming turned...'   

Which is kinda weird, because I don't have anything switched to leave my home network.

On your suggestion about roaming, I have no need to roam with data or calls and the added cost is something I don't need either. I don't even normally have data turned on. I turn off the mobile network most of the time anyway because I dont use apps that require the internet.

The 'data roaming' section in 'mobile network settings' is unchecked anyway, so it should not be roaming for data. That's why I can't understand why the message is appearing in the first place.

Either way, I don't think it is causing a problem. I was just wondering what the phone was trying to tell me.

What I see happened is... you lost the connection to your regular mobile network either by venturing into a dead zone (where there was no reception) or you just left the area. Your phone then alerted you that your connection was dropped, and also included the fact that you do not have "data roaming' enabled to pick up an alternate signal from another carrier.

AdderV, gee I never thought to google! Good pick up.

Keyplyr, yep I guess that was what happened. The notification time links in when I was at work and would have been travelling through a dead spot.

Thanks heaps for your knowledge, both of you.

Cheers.
