I have trouble connecting share-it with other windows/android phones which don't have mobile data connection enabled. When other device turned on their mobile-data , share-it connects them without trouble. Meanwhile, when other device mobile-data connection lost during file transfer, it stops sharing files and mark that file as incomplete. Is there solution for share-it or it's due to windows 10 upgrade?

Thanks in Advance!!!

Using Share.it between two windows phones is hell. As for using between a windows phone and android, even before opeening shareit, switch on the mobile hotspot on android and wifi on windows phone and connect with it. It doesnt matter if you're sending or receiving, you should only switch on wifi and android devices, their hotspots. Use feem between two windows phones.

When connecting your windows mobile with an Android device

Shareit on android device can create a hotspot without a mobile data connection on Android. Follow these steps:

  1. Open Shareit on Android.
  2. Click on Send
  3. Select files to share.
  4. Click Next. Now a hotspot will be created on Android.
  5. Open Wi-Fi settings in Windows mobile.
  6. Connect to the Shareit hotspot. It will be a name with random alphabets.
  7. Now open Shareit and click receive.

When connecting to an another Windows device

Both the devices should be connected to the same Wi-Fi network. If you don't have a home/public Wi-Fi then using a hotspot created by your mobile data is the only option.
