Current Period refers to the period of time since the last reset. This is nothing to do with the cellular plan. You can see the beginning date of the current period by scrolling to the bottom and looking at the date under the reset option. If you have never reset the counter, it has been counting up like the odometer of a car since you started the OS at a ...

Go to Settings > Cellular and scroll down. There should be a breakdown of Cellular Data used by app. If you didn't know this option was there, then you likely will not have reset it, so it will represent all of the cellular data you have used from when you first added your id to the device. That being said it should give you an idea of what apps are the ...

The spinning circle icon is simply a means of indicating that some network activity is taking place, i.e. loading new data in Facebook or Tumblr. It could even be background data access like updating apps from the store or if you have background refresh enabled for some or all apps. It has nothing to do with which network is being used — for that, check the ...

TripMode was made specifically for this purpose, and even turns on automatically when connected to designated cell hotspots.

You cannot use your Wi-Fi connection for Internet connectivity while other devices are using Wi-Fi for Personal Hotspot. You can share only a cellular data connection; you cannot share a Wi-Fi connection. As seen here: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht4517

Build your own VPN using OpenVPN & easy-rsa on a digital ocean cloud server ($5/mo for cheapest VM & 2TB monthly transfer), configure VPN to tunnel/forward all traffic, set up Cloudflare 1.1.1.1 on VPN, then use Apple Configurator to set an always on VPN connection. Can confirm this is how I do it, I set up Ubuntu 16.04 server instance and the ...

Why am I able to receive occasional SMS texts and inbound call attempts, despite cellular being off and not being connected to a WiFi network? Cellular data is not related to SMS. That's a function of your voice service. See: Cellular iPad-Air text message configuration for more details. WiFi calling is a supplement to your cellular voice plan. If the ...

Unfortunately, the answer is no: When you turn on iCloud Photo Library on your iOS device or Mac, your photos and videos will upload after you connect to the Internet with Wi-Fi and your battery is charged. https://support.apple.com/kb/HT204264#upload [emphasis mine]

If you see a 3G at the top left it means that you are in an area which does not have 4G support. When you are in an area with 4G (or, on Verizon, LTE) you will see that in the top-left corner instead.

The directory you're looking for happens to be /var/wireless/Library/Preferences. This is where the Settings > Cellular settings are stored. The per-application settings are stored in the database /var/wireless/Library/Databases/CellularUsage.db. If you want to add a setting manually, you'll need to add an entry for the application in two tables. The ...

Uninstalled apps do not consume data. Rather, apps which were previously installed on the device consumed data, and those apps have now been uninstalled. The total data usage of all apps which were installed on the device at one point are condensed into a single row, called Uninstalled Apps.

Actually this is possible!... Use the following instructions: 1. Tap the blue arrow next to the name of the AirPort Express WiFi network to view more options. 2. Select "Static" as the type of IP address, and then enter the following IP address and Subnet Mask : IP Address : 10.0.1.4 (for example) Subnet Mask: 255.255.0.0 Make sure you leave Router, DNS, ...

Looks like it's restricted —someone activated parental controls on your device. Go to Settings > General > Restrictions and scroll down until you see the Cellular data item, you can deactivate it there (given you know the passcode). On iOS 13, restrictions have been moved under Settings > Screen Time > Content & Privacy Restrictions

I'm sorry for it's not possible but you can disabled the app from running. These are the steps to follow: Go to General, Click on Restrictions, Enter your device password, Switch off the App you want to disconnect. I use it to stop Facebook from consuming Data at the background. FOR NEWER OS VERSION 12.4.6, YOU CAN FIND SIMILAR OPTION IN: Go to Screen ...

The newer iOS versions let you track the cellular data used by each app. Open Settings and then go to Cellular and then swipe up: You can reset the counter if you need to track one day's usage, and you can also disable cellular data for the game in question, if you just want to cut it off when you aren't on Wi-Fi. Generally, most games are quite miserly ...

As has been said, go to Settings > Cellular to find it out for yourself, but let me also actually answer your question as the other two answers barely touch on that: All online games obviously use mobile data, otherwise they couldn't be 'online' If the game includes ads it will use a fairly significant amount of data. (Back when I only had a couple hundred ...

Not possible without a jailbreak. Source: iPhone Configuration for OpenDNS It says, in part (emphasis mine): "These instructions only work for Wi-Fi connections because iOS does not allow you to change the DNS servers when connected to cellular networks. Also, the changes are network specific, so you'll need to change the DNS servers every time you ...

Sure. In Settings > General > Cellular > disable Cellular Data This will restrict all data to Wi-Fi For more information, see iOS: About the Cellular Data setting from Apple Support

First things first, you do not need to worry too much about mobile data consumption when connected to Wi-Fi. As depicted in your picture, Wi-Fi is listed above the iPhone USB interface and will take precedence as the primary interface. In other words, all traffic will be sent to Wi-Fi until it is no longer available or you manually change the service order ...

Those apps appears in that section when i turn the data on and use some apps from the data. Each app when takes the data connection and use it start appearing in the section. Once it appears in that section i was able to remove it from there.

To print to your HP printer using AirPrint you will need some kind of AirPrint server. It is not enough to just get network connectivity to the printer, you need some software running somewhere to handle some of the communication details. It is conceivable that someone makes a 3G WiFi router that includes AirPrint support but I think is unlikely. ...

The thing about these limits is that the carriers and iPhone models are all different. For instance, the iPhone 5 should theoretically be able to handle up to 14 connections, but both AT&T and Verizon limits it to 5. As far as I have understood, it is hardware-limited, and therefore it is not affected by iOS version. I have started on a list which ...

Yes, you can set a Global HTTP Proxy on iOS devices, which routes all network traffic, regardless of connection, through your proxy server. The simplest way is to use Apple Configurator, available free on a Mac using the Mac App Store. You will need to enroll your device via USB cable into "Supervised" mode. This will wipe your device. After this you can ...

This appears to be fixed in iOS7 - I set the DHCP Gateway to 0.0.0.0 and the iPad connects with a tickbox rather than leaving the spinning circle.

Blacklisted IMEI or MEID on iPhones are usually one of two things: Clerical mistakes - contact the police or a cell carrier for assistance in clearing up that mistake. Stolen goods (or goods reported as stolen) - again the police or a lawyer might be your next step if you find out you have purchased stolen goods. You might want to contact the seller and/or ...

It is possible to restrict WiFi or Cellular data for all the apps on your iPhone, but only for iPhones sold in China. Chinese iPhones have an extra option called "Apps using WLAN & Cellular" in Settings > Wi-Fi. In that section you can control apps from accessing data on Wi-FI or Cellular. If you don't want that app to access data, there is "Off" ...

Go to settings > cellular data > cellular data options > turn off 4G and turn it back on. Another way I use to get my phone on 4G is airplane mode on and off.

The iPad Mini model A1454 is designed and will only work on LTE bands 4 (AWS) and 17 (700b MHz). http://www.apple.com/ipad/LTE/ Since 4G means so much, you may have to ask your specific carrier if they use either of these LTE bands. Even if your carrier operates in those bands, there still isn't a guarantee they support iPad so you'd really need to ...
