    Hi,
    When there is a large update available - for example updates to offline maps - WindowsPhone will not allow me to download the update over my cellular data and will advise connecting to WiFi.

    Is there any way to override this?

    In am big enough, ugly enough and have a large enough data plan for me to make the decision as to whether id like to download on WiFi or not.
    Besides... My 4G is lightyears ahead of mt home broadband in terms of speed.

    Cheers,

    Unfortunately, you will need to use WiFi for large downloads. This is not possible to override.

    It's just to cover their butts because someone on the other side of the spectrum is going to be crying how their phone "wasted" their data in places where carriers are more tight-fisted.

    I hope they put in a toggle, although I saw Data Sense has an "Unlimited" option with the descriuption of all data being allowed over cellular. I don't know if that overrides the default behavior though.
