Turn On and Off Cellular Data when WiFi is Off for HTC One M8
Edited by Thor, JellyBean, Eng
Hello, and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we're going to show you how to turn on and off the option to use your data plan when WiFi isn't available on an HTC One M8.
To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the Power button located on top of the phone.
Once the phone has been activated, we'll see the Lock screen.
To unlock the phone, press down on the screen and hold down until the lock/unlock icon is displayed and then swipe up.
Once the phone has been unlocked, we'll see the Home screen and at the bottom we'll see some icons.
All we need to do now is to find the Settings menu.
To do that, we need to swipe the Notification panel down by pressing down at the top of the screen, holding down and then swipe down.
Now we can see that the Notification panel has appeared.
We're looking for this icon in the top right-hand corner of the screen.
We can see that there is a white cog icon, which is our Settings icon.
Press down on this icon and it will open up our "Settings" menu.
We can see it says the word "Settings" in the top left-hand corner of the screen.
We want to be in the first section of the "Settings" menu, where we can see it says the words "WIRELESS & NETWORKS" here in this gray bar.
In this section, we're looking for the option that says "Mobile data" and underneath, "Use my data plan when WiFi isn't available".
What this option means is that when it's turned on and there is no WiFi available, instead of just disconnecting from the WiFi and from the Internet, it will use our mobile data plan to connect to the Internet. We may or may not want to do this because it may cost more money to use our mobile data plan. It may be more inappropriate to use it, depending on our settings and on our use of the HTC One M8. It's good that we have the option to turn this on and off.
Right now, it's turned on.
We can see that because of the icon on the far right-hand side of the screen. There is a box with the word "ON" inside, in black writing. Part of the box is green.
We can also see this icon where there are two arrows, one pointing up and one pointing down.
They are also green. This means that this option is turned on.
If we want to turn this option off, we can just press down on the box, where it says "ON".
Now we can see that it says the word "OFF" and the box is gray.
We can see that the arrows are also gray.
Press down on the box to turn it back on and it will turn back to the green.
The arrows are also green.
This then, concludes our tutorial on how to turn on or off the option to use your data plan when WiFi is not available on an HTC One M8.
