How do I tell whether my phone is roaming, preferably on the lock screen?

  • Or any way to show that whether the phone is in roaming since that's my purpose.

  • @beeshyams Sorry for my messed up question. Also my question belongs to forums, i shouldn't have posted here. My mother commutes to a neighboring state, i asked the question for her. Will ask her to notice whether "R" appearing. Thanks.

  • I turned off Data Roaming in Settings/Connections/Mobile networks, but the "R" is still there. Why??

OP's intention of asking was to know how to identify the mobile is in roaming

It is indicated by R (indicating Roaming) , next to the signal strength icon, which was indeed the case

    @user610620 Data Roaming only affects mobile data usage when it's roaming. However, it doesn't turn off the roaming itself.

  • So how is it really turned off?
