Re: "Background Data" on/off - where is it now after Verizon OTA update?
Hi...I woke up to this update this a.m. and have the same problem; I think I found the solution. BTW, it really pisses me off that an update does something like this. It's as bad as Steve Jobs little walled-in-garden OS. The original post says it's for LG Spectrum devices. I'm not using an LG Spectrum device; I'm using an HTC Thunderbolt and the solution appears to have worked. Here's the URL where I found the info: LG Spectrum 2 Tips – “background data restricted” Settings - LG Cell Phones Blog
And here's the info:
"Some guys told me that there is a “background data restricted” notification after doing the android 4.0 ICS firmware update on their LG Spectrum 2!
Actually “Restrict background data” is a good feature to stop some apps & services from working unless device is connected to a WI-FI network. Some apps sync in the background, and may cause extra data traffic when using a mobile carrier network. You can enable or disable “Restrict background data” by:
From home screen->Press Menu button-> Settings -> Data usage -> Tap Menu > Restrict background data. You might have a box open up that says, "Restricting background data is possible only when you’ve set a mobile data limit". Click OK, and check the box "Set mobile data limit", and OK, then set data limit. "You must set this before it will restrict". Now > Tap Menu > Restrict background data.
You can also “touch to remove restriction” from the drop down notification panel. This works on all LG Spectrum 2 devices."
