Hi all,

Windows Phone 8.1 used to have a setting where you can disable the use of Cellular Data of wifi connection cannot access the internet. I can't seem to find this setting in Windows 10 Mobile build 10512 (or any other builds). I think it used to be part of the SIM settings. Can anyone help?

According to the reference below, the option you may be looking for should be under Cellular and SIM settings. However, upon checking my Windows Phone 8.1 Lumia 1020 (8.10.14226.359), the option is missing as well. On the other hand, checking my sister's L535DS which was received Update 2 (8.10.15116.125), the option for Limited Wi-Fi connectivity is there. Both phones are using the same network/mobile service provider.

Hence, it seems that this feature is dependent both on "mobile operator and phone model", as well as specific OS version since the phrase "your phone must be running Windows Phone software version 8.0.10211.204 or later" as mentioned in the reference below seems to not apply in all cases - especially for the Technical Preview.
