You currently cannot update it without a Wi-Fi connection. A few possible workarounds:
Share your laptop's internet connection—most laptops should be able to share it via their Wi-Fi adaptor, if not you can always pick up a USB Wi-Fi dongle for a few dollars
You mention that you also have a Lumia 925, setup a Wi-Fi hotspot on one of your phones to share ...
I have the same issue and it is very annoying. I believe it's a firmware issue as I didn't have the problem with the original firmware - it started after a firmware update. For now I have only Wi-Fi activated and then I have to switch manually to data connection if I have no Wi-Fi within range. I so much hope there will be a new firmware update that solves ...
If you disable WiFi and connect your phone using the USB cable and open Zune, your phone should be using the internet of the computer automatically. If you now use http://www.wireshark.org/ you can see the actual traffic.
Whether a secure connection is used depends from application to application, so one could go and create a community wiki answer to list ...
I don't know technically if it turn some hardware off but indeed if you set to a lower connection speed your phone will stop to search for this.
Imagine you are in some place here 3G is good but 4G not. If your phone has the connection speed set to 4G it will keep trying get this speed for you. But if you set to 3G as soon as it gets a 3G network its stop ...
It sounds like this might be for data restored from cloud backups when upgrading or resetting the OS, but a) I always do this sort of thing on Wi-Fi...
You are referring to when you download a backup from the cloud to restore the phone. However, periodically, WP has to upload the existing state of your phone to the cloud.
Items uploaded may include (and ...
There are a lot of background tasks to use the network
To name few:
Store checking (and downloading) app updates
Other services you use to sync your stuff (OneDrive, DropBox, etc...)
Apps that run in background (such as Skype, Hike, WhatsApp, etc...)
Automatic OS updates
Sending of Feedback data
To answer your question
Now I am little ...
No, it's not possible to create a shortcut to that screen (at this time).
The Mobile+SIM screen was updated in Windows Phone 8.1 to accommodate dual-sim phones. The details for each SIM now have their own separate page.
Unfortunately they don't have this option in Windows 10 Technical Preview.
Best way to address this is to give feedback to Microsoft using Feedback App (Shortcut: Press Volume Down and the Power button at the same time).
Following Perrucci, Fitzek and Widmer (2011) WLAN is more power efficient than 3G. A publicly accessible excerpt of their results can be found on their website. Note that in their study, the access point was placed fairly close to the cell phone.
The same conclusion has been made by Carroll and Heiser in their 2010 USENIX conference contribution, measured ...
As a workaround to be able to input my APN settings, I download the Nokia Access Point app which adds a new options under Settings called access point which allows me to define a new Internet/MMS APN.
To get this app, scan this QR code:
You can customise which quick actions appear in the action centre.
Simply go to Settings → notifications+actions, tap on any of the quick actions there and choose a new one. Mobile data on/off is available since Windows Phone version 8.10.14219.341.
For more information, see the Notifications and quick actions how-to at WindowsPhone.com.
You can install an app called 'Cellular Data'. Pins to the start screen and displays the status of the cellular connection (on/off):
Google's customer service should be able to convert your old Fi SIM Card into a data-only card (just give them the numbers on the card. If they can't then you'll have to order the data-only SIM Cards.
If you want to have voice on multiple phones you'll sadly need to install the Hangouts app on those phones and it has never been made available for Windows ...
To change the highest connection speed your phone uses for mobile data, follow these steps:
Go to Settings → Network & wireless → Cellular & SIM (or Mobile & SIM)
Tap on "SIM settings"
on a dual-SIM phone, tap "SIM 1 settings" or "SIM 2 settings", depending on which SIM card you've set to be used for mobile data
Change the "Highest ...
OK, I have the answer, but sorry, Kolappan Nathan, it is not yours, as I already had the option "For limited Wi-Fi connectivity" set to "don't use mobile data." As it turns out, the phone was behaving correctly; I was misinterpreting the display.
The H symbol I was seeing, even when the data connection was disabled, was just after the network name on line 2 ...
Yes, this setting an be set by going to Settings -> Network & Wireless -> Mobile & Sim
From there, tap the link for SIM settings you'll then see an option to choose the fastest connection speed to use (which, on my phone, gives the options of 3G or 4G)
I had one such issue - This happens often when i view / stream videos in my lumia 1020.
Steps that i did;
1. Reset the data counter - default
2. Turn off the phone
3. Remove sim and replace it
4. Reboot the phone
5. Search network provider - and select your operator manually
6. Then select Automatic [Only if required and if the signal strength is low]
I am having this issue, (not getting notifications, and not getting them at all) but when I turned off my WIFI on my LUMIA 520, then all the sudden the notifications started working again. I turned WIFI back on (and am connected to my home signal) and the notifications stopped working.
I suppose it would be possible. Read reviews on the app before you download for any issues others may have found. Also, if an app with the same capabilities is made by a well-known developer, it is generally "safer" to download that app, if you are worried. Finally, you could use Data Sense to see if the app is consuming more data than seems necessary.
Try switching between using the older network standard and the newer on the phone, and then see if you can visit websites using the newer after that.
If that works, then maybe Microsoft (or AT&T since it can be a problem with them) will listen to you if you report that.
Try setting up an access point manually from settings section. Before that turn off cellular data.
You will be required to go to, settings >> access point. Tap "add" application bar button. Give your access point name (you will get it from your operator, in my case its "blweb" as my operator is Banglalink3G). fields like username, password, proxy address, ...
As mentioned in the comments, there appears to be an issue in the People and Me Hub on Windows Phone 7 and 8 where it uses a lot more data than normal.
Unfortunately, on Windows Phone 7 there is no way to monitor data usage on a system level. On Windows Phone 8, if you're running GDR2 (or newer), Data Sense will give you a break down of what each (system) ...
It is normal. You have to switch off mobile data if you want your WI-FI to auto-search in range connections. If you keep both active, then your phone will switch betwen them as long as one of them become unreachable :)
