    I just bought a Nokia 5.3. It seems to be working fine, except for two things: I have to drag the thing out of my pocket and swipe, to turn an alarm off; and the more pressing problem - my mobile data keeps turning itself on.

    I like to keep it off except for occasional use, but something keeps turning it on. I've fiddled with sync settings, notifications, data saving, even the google assistant button. The phone still turns mobile data on without my knowledge or permission and, strangely, only when it's in my pocket or the glove compartment of a moving car. Sitting to one side on a table, it's as good as gold.

    Any explanations or hints, anyone?

    Welcome to Android Central! Check your Developer Options and see if there's an option for Cellular Data Always Active. https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/every-...loper-options/

    Blimey.

    Okay, I've found that switch and turned it off. I'll see if that fixes things. Thanks!
