What to do if the mobile network is not available? Ukrainian mobile operators launch national roaming. 

Mobile network operators in Ukraine are launching the joint national roaming. Vodafone Ukraine, Kyivstar and Lifecell have already jont this initiative. 

From now on, if calls are temporarily unavailable on your network, you can switch to other operators to stay connected. The launch of this service is gradual. The combat zones will be covered first (such as Kharkiv, Kherson, Sumy, Poltava, Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporizhia, Donetsk, Luhansk, Kirovohrad, Mykolaiv regions). 

Then the roaming will be established in Chernihiv, Zhytomyr, Cherkasy and Vinnytsia regions and later on throughout Ukraine. 

To activate national roaming, please: 

• turn off auto-selection of Android network (settings - mobile network - operator) 

• for iOS: parameters - cellular data - network selection; 

• find and select an available network (Vodafone UA, UA-Kyivstar or Lifecell); 

If you are unable to register, please try again or choose another network. If you can not connect to another mobile operator's network, restart your phone and try again. 

Your operator's tariffs will be kept while using another network. The companies warn that the connection of the national roaming will overload the networks, therefore this might affect the quality of services.

Important: try once a day to connect to your operator's network. Manually or by turning on autoselection of network.
