Question "You have lost data connectivity because you left your home network with data roaming turned off"?

What does, "You have lost data connectivity because you left your home network with data roaming turned off." mean?

Within "Mobile network settings", only the top option is ticked ('Data enabled') which I believe I need to be able to use 3G. I do not wish to use roaming (I never go abroad) but I do, of course, wish to not lose data connectivity when I'm in the UK and leaving/entering a home Wi-Fi network.

I am running CyanogenMod 7 RC1 (Android 2.3.2) on a ZTE Blade (Orange San Francisco).

Any ideas?

That means you are roaming. To use data while you are roaming, you need to check the option in menu-settings-wireless and networks-mobile network. You may be charged data roaming fees however.

I have unlimited 3G on my tariff, so are my "Mobile network settings" correct (only the top option is currently ticked ('Data enabled'))?

If you want to use data while roaming, you need to check the box that says "enable data roaming".

Roaming is data abroad and not standard 3G though, right?

I'm on virgin and so use different networks (t mobile orange etc). I have to enable roaming and enable national data roaming for everything to work. I'll only be charged roaming fees if I leave the country.
