How Z Roam can help you.

What is Z Roam?
Wireless phone users now Roam all around the world. Z Roam includes roaming information about travel across the US and other countries using cellular service, and have added contributions from dozens of other like-minded cellular users. We share the best ideas and the pitfalls of using wireless away from our "home" areas and outside the US. There are costs in running this site (and taking all those trips!), and those expenses are paid by a small commission from advertisers and sponsored links. So, if you ever buy cellular phones, service or accessories online, we would really appreciate you doing so by clicking on any of the advertising banners and links you see on our site or shopping at The  Z Roam Discount Page. You can search our sites with the search box, below.

This site started as a part of the Roaming Zone, a site dedicated to technical roaming codes and procedures, which is not exactly what foreign wireless roamers want.  This new site was originally named, "A to Z Roaming" which related to our all-encompassing worldwide wireless roaming information.  Later it was shortened to just "Z-Roam" in appreciation of roaming to the "ends of the earth," and thus the alphabet, too.

We welcome updates about new or corrected information and we will fix any errors as soon as possible. We make no warranties to the information, which can change at any time without our notice. Accuracy is the desired goal, and, as with all small operations, it may take some time to update it.

What is Roaming?
Cellular Roaming allows mobile wireless customers to automatically receive service when they are outside of the area covered by their "home" provider's network. Mobile wireless service providers enter into roaming agreements with each other so that their customers will be able roam and receive service automatically, regardless of their location. The FCC has recognized the importance of roaming for mobile consumers and requires mobile wireless service operators to provide automatic voice roaming.

In 2011, the FCC adopted rules requiring facilities-based providers of commercial mobile data services to offer Data Roaming arrangements to other such providers on commercially reasonable terms and conditions, subject to certain limitations. Also, while there are agreements between carriers based in the US with those in foreign countries, those agreements are not as favorable as they are within the US.

Z Roam helps you determine which wireless carriers offer the best roaming capabilities for your wireless usage. Also, find methods to use your wireless devices away from home and outside the country without losing service or getting surprisingly high charges.
