    My Hero on 3 always goes to roaming when I have no 3 signal, I think it uses another networks mast to send your messages that three like rent to use, meaning you have signal most places just not your providers.

    Sometimes you get charged for using it but I dont seem to, so all is good.


    In a simple way, its your phone using another company's mast =)

    Roaming is using another network when your network is out of range. I believe people using 3 Roam to Orange's network when there is no 3G signal to 3's network. This is free for 3 users and is part of their contract with orange.

    However, you should always check with your provider, because unauthorised roaming can be extremely expensive.

    Who is your provider jonous101?
