My Pixel 3 XL phone, recently updated to Android 10, has been showing "preferred system -- roaming" for several days. I am not and Verizon confirmed that.  Roaming affects many phone behaviors and apps so I want it fixed :)

According to Verizon CSR, "Google is probably checking to see if the phone is connecting to the home SID, which you are not connected to. This is by definition roaming, but isnt what is traditionally referred to as roaming."  Whether that definition is correct or not, the diagnosis probably is.  

No network troubleshooting with Verizon corrected it including resetting network connections (erasing any downloaded SIMs) and reactivating the SIM.  Next step is to get a replacement SIM.  

This is new behavior with Android 10 as nothing else has changed on my end -- highly request a fix

Hey Robert,

Thanks for the update! I'm glad to hear that the issue seems to have sorted itself out. 

I concur with your assessment: the fact that it works fine in another location and then continued working fine upon returning home does make a faulty SIM seem unlikely. It may have been a transient network condition which caused the phone to get stuck on roaming but I'm really just guessing here.

How old is your current SIM? If you've been using the same one for a few years it's probably a good idea to swap it out anyway.
