Where to find phone number and carrier info on N4?

    On every cell phone I have ever owned, the name of the carrier was displayed at the top of the screen, next to the bars showing signal strength. However, my new N4 does not appear to show the carrier name anywhere. I looked at the settings but could not figure out a way even to display my phone number.

    Is this intentional or am I missing something?

    Thanks,
    b

    That is probably due to it being a Nexus (i.e. non carrier branded). Go to settings | about phone | status and all that info will be there.

    Oh, and welcome to AF.:)

    Thanks, I found the info as you suggested under About Phone. Don't really need the carrier name displayed on the home screen, as long as there will be something that shows if it tries to go into roaming.

    Great forum!

    I'm not sure what the roaming icon looks like, but under settings, wireless & networks, mobile network settings you can turn off data roaming and at least make sure you don't get nailed with absurd roaming charges because facebook keeps syncing.:rolleyes:

    and yeah, this place is pretty good.:D

    I have turned off data roaming. How do I set it so it never roams at all, for calling or data?

    That I am not sure of, and it may vary depending on your carrier. For me, in the Mobile network settings there is a system select menu with the options for Automatic or Home Only which I presume would prevent me from roaming. I am on VZW though so I'm not sure if it is different on Sprint, AT&T, or other carriers. VZW uses CDMA for voice and this option applies only to the CDMA signal.

    The roaming icon on the nexus 4 is a little R next to the signal bars.

    Ha, ha, thanks. With Verizon where I live I either get their signal or none.:rolleyes:
