Re: Android Update

Hello. Just to be clear, are you talking about phone updates or updates through Google Play? And why do you need this setting to be mobile data? Phone updates are very large and are easier to download through Wi-Fi. Plus you are saving mobile data doing it through Wi-Fi.

Hi. Thanks for the response.
It is the Phone update but not OS upgrade. It is the monthly security patch update. Currently, I am in remote place, no wifi. so looking for option download and install 90 MB file. For past 2 months patch update was pending.
Greatly welcomed any resolution for this?

Re: Android Update

Ah. First check to see if the update is available for download from your carriers website. If so, download it > hook your phone up to your computer > click install on the download and than follow the prompts. Hope that helps.

Re: Android Update

I thought if you read threw the changeling before accepting to download the update, doesnt it have an issue to choose over wifi or not? thought mine had as i NEVER really use wifi. wifi drains ur battery faster than 4g and most 4g signals are as fast as Comcast cables bottom line internet speeds.
try scrolling threw what it says ull receive with the update and see if there's an option. if not try going to settings, connections wifi...3dot menu...click advanced and check to switch to mobile data or use other options

Re: Android Update

perhaps its just to big of a file for regular data download. if you dont have Wi-Fi...be slick, go to a DD or a MCDs or any other place with free Wi-Fi and download it there.
