Mobile roaming is the general term that describes the ability to maintain mobile service outside of the geographical location in which the mobile service was registered. Put simply, if you register for a mobile phone contract in the UK and then travel to the US, roaming is what enables you to still make calls, access email and the Internet etc. while in the US.
The official definition of roaming, as per the Global System for Mobile Communications is:
the ability for a cellular customer to automatically make and receive voice calls, send and receive data, or access other services, including home data services, when travelling outside the geographical coverage area of the home network, by means of using a visited network
This is the explanation behind why you will often see a different network provider on your mobile phone screen when using your mobile phone abroad – this is the visited network.
Roaming agreements are made between mobile phone service providers, and the cost of roaming varies between carriers. This can mean that roaming charges, particularly data roaming which is the term that refers to providing Internet connectivity to enable web browsing and the sending and receipt of emails, is particularly high with some mobile phone companies.
Thankfully, there are a number of businesses that offer roaming package advice that can help reduce the cost of roaming to your business – something which in this age of increase economic pressure is always a welcome thing.

Unless you were hanging out with the sherpas in the Himalayas you probably must have heard a lot about the Samsung Galaxy S II. To say it was well-received would be an understatement as almost everyone we knew had already got one or was planning on getting one. But now we have the official figures from Samsung and we know just how well they did. Unsurprisingly, they did very well.
The Galaxy S II went on to break Samsung’s own record and sold over three million units in the 55 days since launch. That’s approximately 50,000 phones a day. According to Samsung, most of these phones were consumed within the European markets.
If you think these figures aren’t all that impressive, you should know that the Galaxy S II is yet to go on sale in the US. Had it been an international launch, the figures would have been much higher. But even at the rate at which it is currently going, it won’t take long for it to break the 10 million record set by Galaxy S.
