I thought I disabled cellular usage for several games in the past. Going through the list of which applications I've allowed to use cellular data, I noticed there are a few still enabled. I flip them off and go on with my day. However, I've noticed that there are some applications which keep getting re-enabled!
On iOS 7.1.2 on an iPhone 4S, I am able to reproduce this:
- Go into Settings/Cellular.
- Disable cellular usage for Angry Birds.
- Go back to main settings screen.
- Go back to cellular settings.
- Angry Birds is still cellular data enabled!
There is no error message, no indication that it didn't succeed. I've even tried rebooting the phone to see if there was some other error. Nope, this app plus several others refuse to keep their "disabled cellular data" setting. I have free RAM and free storage, so I don't think it should be a matter of available resources to complete the operation.
It is worth noting that there are numerous other applications on my phone that allow me to flip/flop their setting with no problems. Some other applications that are preventing me from doing this (if it is an app thing) are Hill Climb, KidsDoodle, Monster Dash, PunchQuest and PvZ.
Has anyone else seen this? Any reason for it? How can I fix this?
I am not considering upgrading to iOS 8 at this time given the unresolved issues and performance impact on a 4S.
