Data connection

When you turn on HTC One max for the first time, it will be automatically set up to use your mobile operator's data connection (if the micro SIM card is inserted).
Important: You need an LTE plan to use your operator's 4G LTE network for voice calls and data services. Check with your operator for details.

Turning the data connection on or off

Turning your data connection off saves battery life and money on data charges.
  1. With two fingers, swipe down from the status bar to open Quick Settings.
  2. Tap the Mobile data tile to turn the data connection on and off.
