How does international roaming work?
With an international roaming service, individuals can keep using their smartphone to communicate, while being in another country. When abroad, the user's mobile communicates with a visited country's network, which then picks up the connection, determines whether it is registered, and identifies the user's home network. A connection is established when there's a roaming agreement between the home network and visited country's mobile network.
