Enable Global Roaming Mode

Your phone is designed to enter global roaming mode automatically when you activate your Sprint Worldwide service, meaning that it should automatically connect to an appropriate CDMA/LTE network or GSM/UMTS network when you travel. You may set global roaming options through the settings menu.

You may also need to set your network mode options through the settings menu. See Set the Communications Method for Global Use.

Note: Global roaming is auto-enabled on your new Sprint phone. Visit for more information.

To set your roaming options manually:

  1. From home, tap Apps all apps icon > Settings settings app icon > Mobile networks.
