Nokia C3 - Permanently connected to the internet!

April 2018


I bought a Nokia C3 and it seems that the device is permanently connected to the internet. I rarely browse on my phone, so how to disable this feature?


Reasons for the permanent connection is a mail service: the account is not resident in the memory of the cellphone but is somewhere on the network (under the watchful eye of Nokia, of course): the application, even if not initiated, by default will connect your phone to the internet (in most of cases, make use of packet data).
  • solution is quite simple: Go to Menu / Settings / Connectivity / WLAN and for connection type, select the "On demand" .
