Data on mobile
I'm trying to reduce my data consumption. On my old Galaxy S 3 I used roughly 3Gbs a month and now on my Galaxy Note 3 on using 8+ on my mobile plan.
I think it's because my note doesn't stay connected on the wifi at work. With so many people trying to use the companies wifi it gets bogged down. My Note 3 keeps dropping the connection all together because "poor connection speed" and switches back to 4G.
Any suggestions on how to get it to try harder? My Galaxy S 3 stayed connected even during low speed or poor signal.

Re: Data on mobile
I use a simple free app called Connection Mode Toggle Widget. I keep it on my home screen and with one touch switch between WiFi and 3G/4G. I rarely toggle to 3G unless I am out of the office and just have to check my mail. So, while driving let's say, I am not connected to any data access. Any data that is pushed will have to wait until I get to one of my WiFi locations. My monthly data usage is always less than 500Mb on my 2Gb plan.

Re: Data on mobile
I have the 4Gb plan and my mobile data is off during work hours and on during breaks and lunch. I like to watch Netflix on my breaks, so I reserve my mobile data for it. I would suggest leaving mobile data off while you're not using phone if you don't need your phone for work. It does kinda suck that this beast of a phone seems to have its share of reception issues. I had to factory reset my Note 3 to see improvements in that area.
