    Data roaming refers to the use of data services through a network that doesn't belong to the user's home region – such as browsing the internet, watching videos or sending emails on a phone while abroad. As data traffic is conducted over a foreign network, the fees are typically higher; ensure you confirm the costs in advance with your home carrier.

USB OTG can help you read the data from the U disk, charge the phone at a low current, etc.

    USB Tethering means internet sharing. It makes your phone a WiFi router and allows you to share your phone's internet connection with the connected PC. Tethering works when your phone is connected to the internet via mobile data or a WiFi network. 1. Go to Settings > Network & internet > Hotspot & tethering > USB tethering. 2. Connect Nothing Phone to the computer with the USB cable. 3. Connect to WiFi with network access or insert the SIM card to Nothing Phone and connect to an available data network.

    WiFi Direct allows devices to connect and share files directly through WiFi at a range and speed beyond the capabilities of Bluetooth. Common uses of WiFi Direct: 1. Fast file sharing: WiFi Direct is an excellent way to quickly share large files with friends or groups when you can't connect to a wired connection. 2. Screen-casting and screen-sharing: share family photos on your TV or digital portrait, etc. For Nothing Phone, WiFi Direct is key for nearby sharing, screen-casting, etc. It can't handle the file transfer or screencast independently.
