This article explains how to enable or disable data roaming with a cellular connection in Windows 11.

If your device has a built-in SIM or eSIM card with network connectivity, you can connect to mobile data networks anywhere there is a cellular signal.

Mobile connections work similarly to Wi-Fi connections and hotspots, where you can connect to available networks just by knowing the connection credentials. Once connected, you can browse, send email, and perform other network activities.

You don’t need to change cellular settings if your mobile data connection is working properly. However, if you’re having cellular connection issues, changing one or more settings may help.

One setting you can change is data roaming options. This determines whether your mobile data connection remains active when your Windows 11 device is outside your mobile carrier’s network.
