I have a two situations that I need an expert to clarify for me.
- I own a Huawei Honor 8X w/Android v.10. When I am connected to WiFi and my mobile data is turned off, I am able to send and receive text photos.
My wife recently received a Samsung Galaxy A70 w/Android v.11. For her to send or receive text photos, her Mobile Data must be turned on. Even when connected to the same WiFi as myself. With Mobile Data turned off the message “Mobile Data is disabled. Message will send when Mobile data is enabled.”
We are both Koodo Prepaid customers with mobile data. Can someone explain to me why the two phones behave differently? Is there a setting in the Samsung A70 that would allow photos to send with Mobile Data turned off? When text photos are received on the Samsung A70, they are in MMS format.
- This may tie in with Question One. Since the Samsung A70 only receives text photos with Mobile Data turned on. Data is being used unnecessarily. I’m assuming it’s running in the background for some reason. The phone is set to only update apps by WiFi. What else can I check to limit the amount of data that is being used. Other than shutting mobile data off.
Thanks in advance. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
