    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.
