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

29 posts in this topic

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

This is very annoying. Haven't figured out how to turn it off, though...

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 :(
