From unknown reason there is situation where it is not possible to connect to data mobile. Turning on/of flight mode, on/off data mobile, on/off WIFI is not helping. Only reboot helps. What the hell? It is linux I should not be forced to turn off/on my device? It is not WindowsPhone.

It would be great to tell us the device you are using.

Hi. You may want to give a try to an app called Situations I think it is able to switch between mobiledata and WiFi based on the cellid you're connected to. I made a small python for personal use which does just the same, although it is not very stylish. :-)


Fell free to ask any questions if you wanna use it.

Sure, I will take a look. I'm currently using Situations, which is great app. This app reveals this problem. I thought it is this app issues. So I stopped using it. But problem is still there. 2 updates it was worse. Now it is still visible but much less. It is surly Sailfish issue, switching on/off mobile data. Somehow it stuck and there is nothing you can do :) But thanks for suggestion. I could provide some logs if someone want, but I need to know what log is needed.

Sailfish OS release 2.1.1 has a fix for https://together.jolla.com/question/147769/202-20413-2109-after-losing-wifi-mobile-data-doesnt-work/ , in other words for bug "Device doesn't switch to mobile network if wlan network goes out of reach".

@Kurossa: Does the issue you have reported in this post still occur with
