International Data Roaming
Sprint Worldwide Wireless Service can also keep you connected via email and Web browsing
when travelling in countries in which Sprint offers data service. Data services are available on
both CDMA and GSM/UMTS networks; check www.sprint.com/sww to determine the services
available where you are travelling.
Note: Prior to using your Sprint Worldwide GSM/UMTS Data Services, you must establish and
utilize your CDMA data services domestically on the Sprint Network.
Get Started With Data Services
To use Sprint Worldwide Data Services, you will need to have these services activated on your
account.
► To activate, call Sprint Worldwide Customer Support at 1-888-226-7212, option 2.
Representatives are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to assist you.

Once your services are activated, you may need to select a GSM data services provider for the
country you are in.
Access Email and Data Services on GSM/UMTS Networks
To access your email and browse the Web when travelling, you may need to manually select
the carrier that provides Sprint service in your location. You can find a list of carriers for each
country where GSM data service is offered at sprint.com/sww.
Access Email and Data Services on CDMA Networks
If data service is available on a CDMA network, then you only need to set the phone to CDMA;
you will not need to select the specific carrier. Selecting a specific carrier is only necessary for
providers on the GSM network. If your device has automatically selected a GSM network while
traveling, then you will need to set the phone to CDMA to access CDMA data services. (See
Enable Global Roaming Mode.) Visit sprint.com/sww for a list of services available in each
country.
