Sendin a text from abroad do I need to put roaming to 'on' in my phone settings?

I am going abroad this weekend, I have text 150 and it has confirmed my roaming is active. When I go away do I change my roaming settings to 'roaming' in my phone settings to be able to send a text? I dont want to use data abroad I only want to send texts. If roaming is on will I incur data charges even if I do not use the internet?

Hello @Chaz2 for T-Mobile & Orange you may be charged for having data roaming active yes but not EE as the system does not let your device access data services unless you have purchased a data roaming add on. As long as roaming is active you should be able to call & text (also chargeable) but you may need to switch off call barring if you have an Android device. :):

Put Roaming (in general) ON if there is a setting for it but keep Data Roaming OFF.
