How is this option going to benefit you? It's primary purpose is to help you keep your bill under control.
When you travel, you leave your operator's network and enter the network of a partner mobile operator that has a roaming agreement with your mobile company. Agreements with different operators can have different fees, therefore it is in your best interests to choose the one which is the cheapest for you.
Use the FPLMN (Forbidden PLMN) list do indicate to which mobile networks you don't want your phone to ever connect. This list should include the serious offenders who charge a lot for their services.
The PLMN list contains a list of mobile networks to which your phone will try to connect when they are in range. First it will try to connect to the first network, if that fails - to the second one, and so on. With SIM Manager you can prioritize this list and change the order of preferred mobile networks.
The lists of mobile operators will contain some details you may find interesting, such as: the MCC (Mobile Country Code) and MNC (Mobile Network Code) of each operator. You can also determine the country and the name of each mobile network.
Armed with this tool, you can make sure that your vacations will never be ruined by the bills again - you have an instrument that gets you in control of the situation, so accidents simply won't happen.
