"Continuing Internet access will lead to traffic. Continue?"

Recommended Posts

As per subject line - every time my phone swaps from WiFi to 3G, I get a prompt saying "Continuing Internet access will lead to traffic. Continue?"

Anyone know how I can turn this off?

I'm running 2.1r7, but have found this on all 2.1 builds I have tried.

Thanks,

Jules

I think that when WiFi isn't available 3G auto switces on, thats if you haven't disabled Data Service in Wireless and network settings

I just left it on that screen for about 5 seconds and it dissapeared :(

Dan

If I leave it on the screen it doesn't disappear. It's a bigger issue when you lock your screen (and Wi-Fi disconnects) and this thing appears, meaning 3G won't work until you unlock and explicitly tell allow it.

Any solutions? :|

As a side note, I think this "feature" is why I'm seeing such drastically improved battery life:

The phone sleeps, WiFi turns off, and 2g/3g never turns on because of this prompt. SO the phone spends most of it's days not connected to the internet hence no push email, etc, etc.

Nope, I had drastically improved battery life on the beta 2.1 without this prompt.

Isn't there a switch in the network settings for 'network always on' or something? Haven't tried it yet but this might be the deal, flipping it on will make this go away?

EDIT: False alarm. Sorry guys.

Just fixed it.

You need to enable "Data roaming" on "Mobile Networks" inside "Wireless & network settings".

Since this is a Swiss ROM, I'm guessing it "thinks" it's roaming... but not sure. This fixed it for me :-)

You're right. Somehow I had the impression it was working, but today I'm getting that confirmation screen again. Sorry for that.

I hate this thing :|

Edit /system/build.prop

This is the switch that causes the prompting

ro.config.hw_new_wifitopdp=0

Change the 1 to a 0

reboot.

You may have to re-enable data services.

Edit : removed the region and locale settings as these are not needed (thanks Jan M)

if you are in the UK, this works :

Edit /system/build.prop, uncomment these 2 lines and change the region to GB

ro.product.locale.language=en

ro.product.locale.region=GB

This is the switch that causes the prompting (just setting the region is not enough)

ro.config.hw_new_wifitopdp=0

Change the 1 to a 0

reboot.

You may have to re-enable data services.

So I wont get the message as long as those lines of code are as you have shown?

I didn't have those ro.product lines so I just changed the ro.config and it looks like it worked...

Original post ammended.

You don't need to edit these, so if they don't exist, don't worry.

ro.product.locale.language=en

ro.product.locale.region=GB

They exist on another stock UK android phone, so I added them anyway.

To edit build.prop, if you're not a cli person :

Install estrongs file manager from the market (free), enable the root settings, mount /system rw, browse to /system, click build.prop, open as text, edit the file, save, reboot.

Thanks so much man, it works great! Had a bit of a hard time getting it changed since estrongs didn't want to let me use root settings but i finally got it to work through terminal emulator :(
