Mobile phone manufacturers amaze buyers with a wide selection of newfangled gadgets. It is not necessary to understand all the capabilities of smartphones, but it is advisable to be able to work with their basic functions.
Each modern model of mobile phones in one way or another has the ability to access the Internet. Some devices support only the simplest online communication managers, while smartphones provide almost perfect network connectivity and many applications. For these reasons, the default settings of most smartphones allow the device to have an open Internet connection to download the necessary updates. Be careful about this kind of phone operation if you have limited or expensive Internet traffic or low battery power, as resources may run out without your knowledge.
Smartphones equipped with a built-in Wi-Fi connection receiver allow you to access the Internet via Wi-Fi, if there is an activated device within access. First of all, configure the Wi-Fi priority if you do not want to use mobile traffic when connecting to the Internet. You can connect this function in the sections "Wireless connection settings", "Selecting an access point", etc. depending on the brand of the phone. In the Wi-Fi settings section, activate notifications about available wireless networks, if you need it. To conserve battery power, turn off Wi-Fi reception when not using this function.
The section "Configuring wireless networks", "Mobile networks" or "Mobile Internet" will allow you to configure access to the network via GPRS. Uncheck the "Enable Packet Data" checkbox to turn off the internet. When you log off from the network, the checkbox will become inactive, and the icon indicating the enabled Internet will disappear on the phone screen.
Enter Application Settings. In the "Update notifications" section, configure the options for downloading updates from the Internet: enable / disable (applications will update themselves), Wi-Fi only, packet data. When updates are found, the system will ask for your permission to use the Internet. Allow updates only when connected to Wi-Fi and with sufficient battery power.
