Roam Better - with home data is available to customers on most monthly plans. It is not available on prepaid plans, corporate accounts and plans that include roaming services.

You’ll only be charged the daily fee when you make or answer a call, send a text message, use Apple Live Voicemail or when data is sent or received while in your Roam Better destination. The Roam Better – with home data daily fee covers each day of usage until 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time (ET), regardless of which time zone you’re roaming in. You’ll only be charged for a maximum of 20 days per line within the same billing period, after which you can continue enjoying unlimited talk and text and continue to use the data from your account at no additional cost for the rest of the billing period. If you exceed the data included in your rate plan, you’ll be charged the rates that apply to your domestic plan/usage.

Note: the 20-day maximum Roam Better fee applies separately to the U.S. ($13 a day) and all other eligible destinations ($16 a day). For example, if you spend 20 days in the U.S. and then 10 days in Mexico within one monthly billing period, you’ll be charged 20 days for the U.S. ($260 total) and 10 days for Mexico ($160 total).

For any days that you don’t use voice, text or data in a Roam Better destination, you won’t be charged the Roam Better - with home data daily fee.
