My "home" network yesss is a virtual network of the a1 network. So for Internet connection, roaming should be activated.

My Problem: I live near the border, if my phone switches to a provider from germany, it will get really expensive for me and I won't even notice until its to late.

Two ways to solve this Problem is possible:

  • create a list of virtual networks for each provider in the world to determine if you actually are roaming or you are on your home network
  • let the user choose, what network his home network should be (possibly in Settings->System->Mobile network->Select home networks), multiple home networks should be possible

I have exactly the same problem with my provider BOB which is also a virtual network of A1 Telekom Austria. Sadly nothing changed despite i have already made a feature request in february -->

Is there any information on this bug? One could simply make an option to manually select the home network, if otherwise Jolla would be roaming.

I don't live in Austria and also I don't pay for roaming outside the country at all. But would it not be a solution to allow data roaming in settings and pick the provider manually to stick on that provider? I can select here in France (if I want) also which provider I use for roaming (it's a german contract). I made it sometimes because the 3G coverage is different in a lot of regions and I don't know why but in automatic mode it looks like it stick to the last provider in roaming instead of choose the best signal.

not really, if I am in the car and driving into Germany, I would have to switch to automatic search again. If I don't do this, one can not call me. It's more a workaround but sadly no true solution.

This can't be the all time solution. What should people do which live near the border (and of course travel along there), where the phone sometimes has higher reception from the home network and in the next minute a network from the neighbour country provides better reception.
