Turn cellular data on or off

To turn cellular data on or off, go to Settings, then tap Cellular or Mobile Data. If you’re using an iPad, you might see Settings > Cellular Data. If you’re using a Dual SIM iPhone, you need to set one of your plans as the primary data number in order to see how much cellular data you’ve used.

Depending on your carrier and device, you might have additional options listed under Cellular Data Options:

  • Enable LTE, 4G, or 3G. You can select what type of network connection to use for voice and data. Learn more about these options.
  • Turn Voice Roaming on or off: With CDMA networks, you can turn off Voice Roaming to avoid charges from using other carrier’s networks.
  • Turn Data Roaming on or off: When you’re traveling internationally, you can turn off data roaming to avoid roaming charges. If you have an international data plan, you may need to keep Data Roaming on. Learn more about traveling internationally with your iPhone or iPad.

Depending on your carrier, data roaming might be used if you travel domestically. Contact your carrier for more information about your data roaming policy or other cellular data settings. You can turn cellular data on or off to limit apps and services from using the cellular network to connect to the Internet. When cellular data is on, apps and services use your cellular connection when Wi-Fi isn’t available. As a result, you might be charged for using certain features and services with cellular data. Contact your carrier for more information about possible charges.

The Verizon iPhone 6 and Verizon iPhone 6 Plus finally support simultaneous voice and data, which is a fancy way of saying you can talk and use the Internet at the same time. The only catch is that you need to turn on voice and data on the Verizon iPhone 6 before you can use it.

We’ll show you how to turn on Verizon iPhone 6 voice and data and explain how you can use this.

Thanks to new Verizon VoLTE connectivity you can now make a call using the speedy LTE connection on your iPhone instead of the older connection style that the iPhone 5, iPhone 5s and other Verizon iPhones use while making a phone call.

On top of delivering better sounding calls you can also talk and browse the web at the same time. This sounds like a small deal, but it lets you look up directions to a restaurant or check on anything else without hanging up and calling someone back.

Learn how to use voice & data at the same time on the Verizon iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus.

Here’s how you can turn on Verizon iPhone 6 voice and data so that you can use this new feature. You can only use this when you have a LTE signal, but the good news is Verizon offers widespread 4G LTE coverage.

Verizon’s special HD Voice and Video calling only work when calling another enabled Verizon device, but so long as you are connected to LTE you can use VoLTE for simultaneous Voice & Data on the Verizon iPhone 6.

How to Turn Verizon iPhone 6 Voice & Data On

Before you can use this you need to turn it on in your iPhone 6 settings. On the Verizon iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus open your Settings.

Tap on Cellular at the top of settings. After you do this you will see an arrow or Data Only next to Enable LTE.

How to turn off cellular data on an iphone or ipad

Turn on Voice & Data on the Verizon iPhone 6.

Tap on the Enable LTE Option and then tap on Voice & Data. The phone will take a minute or two to turn this option on. You may need to be in LTE coverage when you do it.

You may also need to turn on the Advanced Calling 1.0 feature on your account. The directions below show you how to do this. Activating Voice & Data on the Verizon iPhone 6 turned this feature on for us.

How to turn off cellular data on an iphone or ipad

After you turn this on, you may need to add a free feature on your Verizon account.

When you make calls on VoLTE the call goes over the phone’s data connection. This allows for better sounding calls, but calls will still use your minutes instead of your data. Verizon calls this Advanced Voice Calling 1.0 and in order to use HD Voice and Video calling the other user needs to be using a capable device. This will not work when you call another carrier, landline and most other cell phones on Verizon.

This is only available on the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, LG G2 and Samsung Galaxy S5. You also need to make sure Advanced Calling is turned on in your Verizon account. Use this link to go to your Verizon Account, log in and add the free feature if it is not already on. When we checked the feature was already turned on for our account.

You may need to turn on Advanced Calling 1.0.

Although VoLTE support is part of iOS 8, the iPhone 5S iOS 8 update does not let you use this feature to talk and surf on the iPhone 5s.

Check out the other new iOS 8 features below and make sure you learn how to turn on Hey Siri, to do more with your iPhone 6 and iOS 8.

iOS 8 vs iOS 7 Walkthrough – Home Screen

We start our iOS 8 vs iOS 7 walkthrough with the iPhone home screen, which is where you’ll start your iOS 8 experience after an update this fall.

These screens are incredibly important as you see them anytime you turn on the iPhone or need to choose an app to launch. There is no way around using them, so Apple needs to make sure they work just right.

As you can see in the iOS 8 vs iOS 7 comparison above, there is no change between the home screen in the new iPhone software. Apple changed the status bar and some other small visual changes in iOS 7, but there are no updates for iOS 8.

We could see Apple change the home screen slightly for iOS 8 for the iPhone 6. The new iPhone will feature a larger 4.7-inch display with a higher resolution. This is something Apple may use to add more icons to the screen. Or they could stick with the current layout, it’s tough to tell.

Можно активировать передачу данных по сотовой сети на iPad, включить или выключить использование сотовых сетей и выбрать, какие приложения и службы могут использовать сотовые данные. Некоторые операторы разрешают также изменить тарифный план передачи данных.

Примечание. За помощью по использованию сотовых служб и платежам обращайтесь к своему поставщику услуг беспроводной связи.

Если iPad подключен к интернету по сети сотовых данных, в меню статуса отображается значок сотовой сети.

Если параметр «Сотовые данные» отключен, все службы передачи данных, включая электронную почту, просмотр веб-страниц и push-уведомления, используют только сеть Wi‑Fi. Если параметр «Сотовые данные» включен, оператор может взимать с Вас дополнительную плату. Например, определенные функции и службы, такие как «Сообщения», осуществляют передачу данных. Их использование может привести к взиманию платы согласно Вашему тарифному плану.

Примечание. Модели Wi-Fi + Cellular не поддерживают телефонную сотовую связь, они поддерживают только передачу данных по сотовой сети. Чтобы совершать вызовы на iPad, используйте функцию «Вызовы по Wi‑Fi» и iPhone.

Добавление тарифного плана сотовой связи на iPad

Если Вы уже настроили тарифный план, откройте «Настройки» > «Сотовая связь», коснитесь параметра «Добавить новый тариф», затем следуйте инструкциям на экране.

Просмотр и изменение учетной записи для передачи данных по сотовым сетям

Выберите «Настройки» > «Сотовые данные», затем коснитесь «Управлять [имя учетной записи]» или «Услуги оператора».

Настройте использование сотовых данных, производительность, время работы от аккумулятора и другие параметры сотовых данных.

Чтобы включить или выключить параметр «Сотовые данные», откройте «Настройки» > «Сотовая связь».

Чтобы настроить параметры, когда «Сотовые данные» включены, откройте «Настройки» > «Сотовая связь» > «Параметры данных», затем выполните любое из следующих действий.

Уменьшение использования сотовых данных. Включите параметр «Экономия данных» или коснитесь «Расход данных», затем выберите «Экономия данных» (в зависимости от модели iPad). В этом режиме приостанавливаются автоматические обновления и фоновые задачи, когда iPad не подключен к Wi-Fi.

Включение или выключение роуминга данных. Если роуминг данных включен, то при нахождении вне зоны действия сети Вашего оператора сотовой связи для доступа к интернету используется сеть стороннего оператора. Если Вы путешествуете, можно отключить роуминг данных во избежание платы за роуминг.

В зависимости от модели iPad, оператора и региона может быть доступна следующая функция.

Включение и выключение LTE. Если включить сеть LTE, то данные будут загружаться быстрее.

На 12,9-дюймовом iPad Pro (5-го поколения) (Wi-Fi + Cellular) и 11-дюймовом iPad Pro (3-го поколения) (Wi-Fi + Cellular) можно выполнять указанные ниже действия.

Включение режима Smart Data для оптимизации времени работы от аккумулятора. Коснитесь «Голос и данные», затем выберите «5G Auto». В этом режиме iPad автоматически переключается на сеть LTE, в случае если скорость соединения по сети 5G не обеспечивает более высокой производительности.

Примечание. По умолчанию функция «Помощь Wi-Fi» включена. Если соединение Wi-Fi слабое, функция «Помощь Wi-Fi» автоматически включает передачу данных по сотовой сети для усиления сигнала. Поскольку при ухудшении сигнала Wi-Fi подключение к интернету сохраняется за счет сотовой связи, возможно увеличение платы за дополнительный объем трафика в зависимости от Вашего тарифного плана. См. статью службы поддержки Apple Сведения о функции «Помощь Wi-Fi».

Блокировка SIM-карты

Если на Вашем устройстве установлена SIM-карта, которая используется для передачи данных по сотовой сети, ее можно заблокировать с помощью личного идентификационного номера (PIN-кода), чтобы ею не могли воспользоваться посторонние. В этом случае после каждого перезапуска устройства или извлечения SIM-карты Ваша SIM-карта будет автоматически блокироваться, а для снятия блокировки будет необходимо ввести PIN-код. См. статью Использование PIN-кода SIM-карты на iPhone или iPad.

You’ve had your iPhone for a few weeks and you notice “Cellular” as you’re perusing through the Settings app. You’re alarmed when you notice Cellular Data and Data Roaming are both turned on. If you’re still reeling from the roaming charges on your phone bill in 1999, you’re not alone. We’re all due for some up-to-date information about what roaming means for iPhones today. In this article, I’ll explain how cellular data works, what data roaming means on your iPhone, and share some tips so you don’t get burned by data overage charges.

What’s Cellular Data On My iPhone?

Cellular Data connects your iPhone to the internet when you’re not connected to Wi-Fi. When Cellular Data isn’t on, your iPhone can’t access the internet when you’re on the go.

Where Do I Find Cellular Data?

You’ll find Cellular Data in Settings -> Cellular -> Cellular Data. The switch to the right of Cellular Data allows you to turn it on and off.

When the switch is green, Cellular Data is on. When the switch is gray, Cellular Data is off.

When Cellular Data is on, you’ll see LTE in the upper left-hand corner of your iPhone. LTE stands for Long Term Evolution. It’s the fast data connection available, unless you’re using Wi-Fi. When Cellular Data is off, you’ll only see the signal strength bars in the upper left-hand corner of your iPhone.

For almost everyone, it’s a good idea to leave Cellular Data on. I’m always on the go and I love to be able to access my email, social networks, and internet when I’m out and about. If I didn’t have Cellular Data turned on, I wouldn’t be able to access any of those unless I was on Wi-Fi.

It’s absolutely OK to turn off Cellular Data if you have a minuscule data plan or you don’t need internet when you’re not at home. When Cellular Data is off and you’re not connected to Wi-Fi, you can only use your iPhone to make phone calls and send text messages (but not iMessages, which use data). It’s amazing that almost everything we do on our iPhones uses data!

1. Off

This setting turns off LTE so your iPhone uses a slower data connection, like 4G or 3G. If you have a small data plan and you want to avoid overage charges, you may want to choose Off.

2. Voice & Data

As I said before, our iPhones use a data connection for a lot of what we do. Nowadays, even your phone calls can use LTE to make your voice sound crystal-clear.

3. Data Only

Data Only enables LTE for your iPhone’s connection to the internet, email, and other apps, but doesn’t enable LTE for voice calls. You’ll only want to choose Data Only if you’re having trouble making phone calls with LTE.

Do LTE Voice Calls Use My Data Plan?

Surprisingly, they don’t. At the time of this writing, Verizon and AT&T are the only wireless carriers that use LTE for phone calls, and both of them don’t count LTE voice as part of your data plan. There are rumors that T-Mobile will add voice over LTE (or VoLTE) to its lineup in the near future.

HD Voice and Advanced Calling

HD Voice from AT&T and Advanced Calling from Verizon are fancy names for what your iPhone calls Voice LTE. The difference between LTE Voice and regular cellular phone calls is staggering – you’ll know the first time you hear it.

AT&T’s HD Voice and Verizon’s Advanced Calling (both LTE Voice) haven’t been deployed nation-wide because they’re so new. For LTE Voice to work, both callers need to have new phones that support voice calls over LTE. You can learn more about Verizon’s Advanced Calling and AT&T’s HD Voice on their websites.

Have no fear: Data roaming has no effect on your phone bill when you’re anywhere in the United States. I remember when it used to, but several years ago the wireless providers agreed to do away with roaming charges for good. That was a big relief for a lot of people.

This is important: Roaming charges can be exorbitantly high when you’re traveling abroad. Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint charge a lot of money if you use their data when you’re overseas. Keep in mind that your iPhone constantly uses data to check your email, update your Facebook feed, and do a slew of other things, even when you’re not using it.

If you really want to be safe, I recommend turning off Cellular Data entirely when you’re traveling abroad. You’ll still be able to send photos and check your email when you’re on Wi-Fi, and you won’t be surprised by a massive phone bill when you get home.

Wrapping it Up

We covered a lot in this article. I hope my explanation of cellular data and data roaming on iPhone helps you feel a little more at ease when you use your wireless data connection. We talked about how to turn Cellular Data on and off and how LTE voice makes your voice calls crystal-clear. I’d like to hear your thoughts in the comments section below, and if you’re interested in learning more, check out Payette Forward’s article about what uses data on your iPhone.

Since you’ve had your iPhone or iPad, you’ve probably seen data roaming lurking around in the settings app. You can usually find this in your data settings, but you have no idea what it is.

What is Data Roaming?

Data roaming is a service that your carrier can provide you with. Popular carriers such as AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and EE will have data roaming if you’re with them. Data roaming refers to the data service you can use on your iPhone when you’re not in your cellular networks coverage area. In simple terms, data roaming is data your iPhone can receive when your iPhone isn’t in your networks coverage area.

The term roaming also gives you a massive hint here. When something roams, it looks around for something else. So, when your data is roaming, it’s looking to check if you’ll be able to use data anywhere that your network didn’t cover.

For example, when you go abroad, you’re able to use the internet even though your provider doesn’t cover that area. This means that you have data roaming enabled because your network may not cover that area, so your iPhone has roamed around for a data service that it can use.

How Does Data Roaming Work?

When your iPhone is anywhere that your network doesn’t cover, your data is now roaming. It’s not this easy for your data to roam however, there are a few things involved. First of all, your iPhone needs to be able to connect to other carrier’s cell towers in order for it to roam.

Phone Connectivity

For example, if your carrier is Verizon, your iPhone needs to be able to connect to other carriers such as AT&T for it to use their data services when it’s roaming. So, if you live in America and you go to Europe for example, you’re may not be able to use the data services of a popular Europe carrier like O2 depending on how good the connectivity of your device is. If your connectivity is great, then chances are that you’ll be able to use it.

Carrier Connectivity

Another major factor for data roaming to work is the carrier. As you know, when your data roams, it looks for another data service for it to connect to. This means that there need to be two different carriers for data roaming to work. So, if you’re with a carrier, it needs to agree with another carrier that, when the user can’t access data in a certain area, they can use the other carriers data service.

Most carriers have made mutual agreements which each other in terms of data roaming. This means you should be able to use your data abroad if your iPhone has good connectivity and if your carrier has agreed to other carriers to use their data services.

How data Roaming fees are Triggered

If you’re internationally roaming data, you’ll be charged data roaming fees, and this can get pretty expensive. For you to get charged for data roaming, you’ll have to trigger the data roaming fees. Here’s a list of the of things that can trigger your data roaming fees:

  1. Someone sends you a text
  2. You send a text
  3. You call a friend or family
  4. Downloading or uploading anything on the internet, for example, sending an email
  5. A friend of a family gives you a call

The worst part about a friend or family giving you a call is that you don’t have to answer the call. If your iPhone registers the call and it goes to voicemail, you’ll be charged data roaming fees.

Turn data roaming on or off, prepare for international trips, and more.

Turn off Data Roaming or prepare for a trip

Need to avoid roaming charges because you arrived at your destination without an international data plan? Turn off Cellular Data and Data Roaming. 1,2 Open Settings and tap Cellular, or Cellular Data, or Mobile Data. Turn off Cellular Data, then tap Cellular Data Options and turn off Data Roaming.

Still planning your trip? Here are three ways to prepare:

Shop roaming plans with your carrier

Before you go: To avoid fees and higher rates, call your carrier or visit online to shop international roaming plans.

After arrival: Open Settings. Tap Cellular, or Cellular Data, or Mobile Data. Then tap Cellular Data Options and turn on Data Roaming and other settings suggested by your carrier.

Shop roaming plans with eSIM and Apple SIM

Before you go: If you have an iPad with an eSIM or Apple SIM, you can browse cellular data plans from select carriers in more than 90 countries, regions, and territories.

After arrival: Go to Settings > Cellular Data and buy a roaming plan that fits your needs.

Buy or rent local SIM cards

Before you go: You can usually 3 buy or rent a SIM card for a specific country or region. Learn more from travel guides and websites related to the country or region.

After arrival: Replace your current iPhone SIM card or iPad SIM card with the new one. You’ll need the original when you return home, so put your original in a safe place.

  1. When you turn off Cellular Data and Data Roaming, the cellular-data icon shouldn’t appear in the status bar. Learn more about cellular data settings and usage.
  2. Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + Cellular) and Apple Watch Series 4 don’t support data roaming. While using data roaming on your iPhone, Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + Cellular) or Apple Watch Series 4 will only be able to use Wi-Fi or your iPhone cellular connection.
  3. To use bought or rented SIM cards, you need an iPad (Wi-Fi + Cellular), unlocked iPhone, or SIM-free iPhone.

How to turn off cellular data on an iphone or ipad

Check your data usage

If you exceed the data-usage limits of your international data plan, you might run out of data or notice slower network speeds. To check data usage, open Settings and tap Cellular, or Cellular Data, or Mobile Data. Then look under the Cellular Data heading.

We have three new iPad Air 2s within the family. All have wi-fi capability but we are not needing to suscribe to it at this time, plan to use it on trips away from home. All of them get a popup message every 1-2 hours reminding to select a cellular plan. If it were only asking to select a cellular carrier I would understand, but when you do that it requires you to select a plan and add payment info for it. We are not ready to do that at this time. There is no “off” button on the cellular setting as there is on the iPhone. Is there a way to turn off the constant reminders to add a cellular plan?

I’m sorry to hear you are having issues with your new iPads. If you are not planning on activating a cellular data plan for the moment but are continually prompted to do so, you may want to make sure that Cellular Data is turned off for now, as outlined in the following article (please let me know if you do not see this option in Settings > Cellular Data, and if not, what you are seeing):

Jan 10, 2015 9:52 AM

Thanks, Brenden, but as I said there is no option to turn off cellular data. Screen shot:

When I click “Set Up Cellular Data” it makes me choose a plan to activate and pay for.

Jan 12, 2015 12:38 PM

Is there an option to not sign up for data plan? Take a closer look at it.

Read this thread:

This seems to be a problem with devices with Apple SIM card. The workaround is to use Siri to switch off Data Cellular.

Jan 12, 2015 2:38 PM

It looks like there is no permanent fix right now. I have an appointment with the Genius Bar at the local Apple Store in an hour and will see what the “experts” there have to say about it.

Jan 13, 2015 1:13 PM

There is no option to not sign up for the data plan. I just returned from the Apple Genius Bar and my genius said the only way to stop the message now is to remove the SIM card, but be sure to keep it in a safe place for when I want to activate Cellular. The change from the older iPads is that the pre-installed SIM is a generic one that will work with ATT, TMobile and Verizon. In the past you selected your carrier when you purchased the iPad and their dedicated SIM card was installed. I really dislike this solution, especially keeping up with the itsy bitsy SIM card and having it readily available when I need it. I did try a temporary solution mentioned in another thread to tell Siri to turn off Cellular Data. She will do it, but it resets when you reboot the iPad. That is preferable to me than removing and keeping up with the SIM card.

Question: Q: How do you turn off cellular data on Ipad Air 2 with IOS 8.1.2 More Less

How to turn off cellular data on an iphone or ipad

You should restrict cellular data on your iPhone or iPad while you are on a limited data plan, using the phone in roaming, or handover it to your kid. When enabled, data restrictions prevent users from making changes to cellular data settings from the Control Center. With all that said, let’s go ahead and check how to restrict cellular data with Restrictions on iOS 14 or 15.

Before we begin, make sure you have set up Screen Time on your iPhone or iPad.

According to your choice, enable or disable the Mobile Data option from the Control Center. After enabling Restrictions, this will be grayed out (and thus kids/other people can not change it).

How to restrict cellular data with Screen Time on iPhone and iPad

  1. Open Settings and tap Screen Time.
  2. Tap Content & Privacy Restrictions.How to turn off cellular data on an iphone or ipad
  3. Enable Content & Privacy Restrictions on the next screen, if not already. Enter the Screen Time password if asked.How to turn off cellular data on an iphone or ipad
  4. Under ALLOW CHANGES, tap on Cellular Data Changes and select Don’t Allow.How to turn off cellular data on an iphone or ipad

Now open the Control Center (by swiping down from the top right corner on iPhone with Face ID and swiping up from the bottom of the screen on iPhone with the Home Button). You will see that you can not tap and make changes to the mobile data icon.

How to turn off cellular data on an iphone or ipad

This does the job when you give your iPhone to a kid or someone who is not tech-savvy. But you or anyone can always go to the Settings app and make changes (enable or disable) to Cellular data settings.

However, if you want to completely restrict cellular data for a particular app, then you can turn off cellular data for specific app.

Signing off…

I hope you learned how to wisely use mobile data on your iPhone. Just make sure not to forget your Screen Time password.

Finally, besides completely restricting cellular data, you may choose to enable Low Data Mode. This helps you save cellular and Wi-Fi data if you have a limited plan. It does so by limiting or turning off certain functions like Background app refresh, syncing, some big backups, etc.

How to turn off cellular data on an iphone or ipad

Did you know that it’s possible to turn off cellular data for specific apps on iPhone and iPad? For the most part, you don’t need to prevent certain apps from using mobile data. But this feature is helpful if and when you are on a limited data plan. Surprisingly, we can use this trick to block ads in iPhone games too. If this sounds interesting, let’s dig in and learn more.

How to prevent apps from using cellular data on iPhone

  1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap on Cellular.
  3. Scroll down to see a list of apps under CELLULAR DATA. (Here I’m showing for YouTube.)
  4. Turn off the toggle next to an app name.

Disable the switches for the applications will turn cellular data off for those applications alone while available for others. This comes in handy when you want to make sure you have access to mail, but you don’t want Apple Music, Facebook, WhatsApp, or any other app to be fetching data.

Completely restrict cellular data for specific apps

  1. open the Settings app and tap on Cellular.

To allow cellular data access to these apps, follow the steps above to turn off Content & Privacy Restrictions. Then switch on the toggle for all the apps under Cellular settings.

This is how you can turn off mobile data for a particular app. From now on, these apps will be able to connect to the internet only when you use Wi-Fi. Of course, you can undo it and allow access to cellular data whenever required too.

I hope this quick guide was helpful. If you have a question, please let me know in the comment box below.
