    I installed the latest os update for the dev prev users yesterday. Now 'cellular data' toggle is in my action centre. But I'm noticing that every now & then the cellular data is getting automatically turned on and then I have to turn it off manually.
    Anyone else facing this problem?

    Yes I have been getting the same.. Mostly when I'm downloading, so I'm currently wondering if my phone switches to using data without me knowing or if this is just a bug

    Not sure, but after playing with the phone the whole day, I noticed that the phone jumps to data as soon as my wifi signal is too weak to load a page or a game etc.. If that's the case then this is good and bad. Good, because the phone makes sure that im connected even if my Wifi signal is weak, but this is bad, because if I just want to use Wifi to save my data, the phone won't know that and will require me to check every time

    I am ok with all that mess. But the wifi toggle implementation is so bad. Are they ever going to change that?

    Lol yea it really is a "hit or miss" situation with that one.. Works well sometimes and other times just directs you to the wifi settings. It's like playing Russian roulette :P

    If that's really the case then thats totally bad news for me! I rarely use my cellular data and if the cellular data is used without letting me know I will be out of credit soon! PAYG rates are quite high. There should be an option to turn on/off this feature.

    I could be wrong tho lol, it was still odd to see it jump on automatically every time I was to far away from my router

    So your phone is trying to stay collected, might be doing something needing internet, like downloading an update, and when Wi-Fi gets low, it turns to carrier data and turns it on.

    Sounds like a bug to me that they didn't expect, see about getting in touch with Microsoft to let them know, though they have been known to read these forums.

    Good luck!

    that's a bug. it appears sometimes that it's on but not really..
    you have to tap it twice to disappear. the first tap, allows the data transfer on, 2nd tap turns it off.

    It's not a bug, it's a feature and it can be turned off. Go to settings, mobile network & simcard, and you see the option to use mobile date when wifi is low. Turn it off and you're safe from unexpected costs. Downside of turning it off could be that notifications can be delayed.

    sorry it took some time, i set my Phone to english to make the screenshots.
    Go to settings, select cellular + sim. There you see the option for limited wifi connectivity, turn cellular data off and it stops using mobile data.

    Maybe this feature is only available in the newest phones.

    I think it's in the cellular+SIM settings where you notice an option about weak WIFI signal, and then the phones decides to use cellular data by default.
