    There is an option in settings to disable data when in roaming or something like that. Disabling that option or enabling data when in roaming can solve your problem.

    Also, you don't need username and password. Leave it blank.

    Did you try to set the authentication to none or automatic and see if that works? PAP without a username and password will not work anyway.

    also as Satish mentioned pls see if data is blocked on roaming, are you using it in same state as you landed or moved out of state?
