I have to restart my phone to use my data every day or so


Hello. I have a Samsung Galaxy S II X. Normally I have my wi-fi turned on for home and at the office. I only have a 200MB data limit for the month. I find that if I restart the phone, the data works fine for a day or two when I turn it on as needed, but after that, I turn it on and nothing; no data symbol and no access. I have to restart it again. Can anyone help me with this?

If it's an older phone, the software may have developed a few lazy tendencies, the normal treatment being a factory reset. Of course, you will lose all your settings, so that's the last route to take. Try doing an end-run: download the data enabler widget mentioned half way down the page. One-button data toogle that will by-pass your normal touch menu sequences.. http://community.koodomobile.com/koodo/topics/data-and-how-to-make-the-most-of-it Article also mentions a number of useful ways to limit your data usage.
