    Question Help in deciding the present tense - conforming the grammar for the sentence

    Hi All,

    I am learning English and I just want to conform if the below sentence is grammatically correct.

    "However, I still sometime gets the roaming indicator on my handset."

    As per my understanding, this sentence is using Present Simple because of the frequency involved in it. So, the actual situation is that the user is facing some problem intermittently on his handset.

    Can some one please conform if my understanding is correct and if we can re-write this sentence more correctly?

    Regards

    "However, I still sometimes gets the roaming indicator on my handset."
    If you remove the "s" after "get" and add one after "sometime", it will be correct.
