    So, for the first time i've managed to trigger my data sense limit in which bg data got restricted.
    OK i say, when i get back to the office via wifi everything will work through there... BZZZ wrong...
    i'm connected via wifi and i still can't use whatsapp, wth is going on?!?!?

    WHY is there such a massive bug present?, if i'm via wifi why is it still restricting BG data, i don't want this, this is not working as intended, when you connect via wifi all limits must lift until wifi loses connectivity, that's why data sense is for CELLULAR DATA.
    So, when is this bug going to get fixed or what i can i do short of killing the "data sense" which is clearly not smart and not sensing jack

    i'm on WP8.1 btw

    I doubt this is a bug, as I've never had this happen on my device (back in the days I was using data sense).

    I think WhatsApp uses cell data, not Wi-Fi. I don't think there's a switch to change it either

    whatsapp does not use cell data only, it uses the main one you select and wifi has priority.
    (in symbian you could chose priority in the app).

    i had to disable data sense and it started working VIA WIFI, ridiculous

    Whelp, now it stopped working completely.
    Also Data sense is not working correctly regardless of whatsapp, it restricts BG data EVEN ON WIFI, WTH...

    for example: mail account, with BG data restriction it stops synching in BG EVEN ON WIFI, the second i turned the restriction off a ton of mails started showing up. tha'ts clearly a bug, data sense whould not restrict ANYTHING when a viable wifi link is detected as all traffic goes there and does not count towards any limit

    that BG limit and data sense is for CELLULAR DATA ONLY, when you're on wifi ALL LIMITS SHOULD BE DISABLED.

    i managed to get whatsapp working by disabling mobile data completely, this is beyond dumb...

    how do i file a bug report with MS for this?
