The only android app I installed with network when wifi not enabled is Fennec browser. F-Droid, Store and several other apps cannot find network unless wifi enabled.

@mf1910: Which Android apps have you tried?

According to Jolla's tests the apps listed below, to name a few popular ones, do work via mobile data (WiFi turned off):

  • Facebook
  • Instagram
  • Whatsapp
  • Spotify
  • OsmAnd
  • Here WeGo
  • Outlook
  • Firefox
  • Wire
  • HSL (local public traffic in Helsinki)
  • Ookla speed test
  • Yle.fi (news from the Finnish broadcasting company)
  • Android app stores: Aptoide, Yalp, APK Pure

Some of the apps work indeed (e. g. Here WeGo), but apart from apps mentioned before (F-Droid, Store) both ProtonMail and Aliexpress apps cannot find mobile network.

It was the same for me, so I reflashed the phone with the latest files from jolla and now mobile data works in e.g. F-droid.
