Data connection

When you turn on your phone for the first time, it will be automatically set up to use the AT&T mobile network.

Turning the data connection on or off

Turning your data connection off can help save battery life and save money on data charges. However, if you don’t have data connection turned on and you’re also not connected to a Wi-Fi network, you won’t receive automatic updates to your email, social network accounts, and other synchronized information.
  1. On the Start screen, slide to the left.
  2. Tap Settings > cellular.
  3. Tap the Data connection On/Off switch.

Warning: Using data services while roaming is not part of your subscribed monthly data access allowance. Check with AT&T for data roaming rates before you enable data roaming.
  1. On the Start screen, slide to the left.
