Toggle cellular data on/off

If you are a webOS user on an unlimited data plan, you never think twice about using your cellular data connection when you are out. However, if you are on a limited data plan and want to ensure that you do not unexpectedly use up all your data (or at least want to limit when you use you data), you can easily toggle your data usage on or off, while still keeping Wi-Fi on for almost all your data needs. While you will continue to receive phone calls and SMS messages, the only drawback to this is that you will not receive any MMS (photo/video) messages, nor will you even be notified of these messages until you turn data back on.

To toggle your data connection:

  • Open up the Phone app, swipe down from the top-left corner to bring up the Phone application drop-down and select "Preferences". A new card will open with your Phone preferences options
  • Scroll down to the "NETWORK" section
  • Toggle "Data Usage" between On or Off

To make this even easier, there are many patches that add a "Data" toggle to the Connection Menu dropdown (when you swipe down from the top-right corner). This will allow you to turn your data on or off from almost anywhere on the phone and it just a matter of seconds
