When no wifi is available, I have no access to the internet even though my phone says i have a data connection.
At the time I was using a cheap smartphone that I purchased at Staples (made by 'Ontop'). Yeah, I'd never heard of them either. With their phone I had to physically turn off the wifi and switch to 4g in order to access data. I now have a Samsung that does it automatically. Pays to get quality products.
I have an LG3 phone. It has worked fine until I changed plans and added data. I still cannot access data unless it is through wifi. I tried turning wifi off and trying the data but no luck. I went to setting-more-mobile networks-access point names - filled in data as I found in another question. Hopefully it isn't different for different phones. Can you help me?
