Please add an option to disable the mobile data connection from within Settings->System->Mobile network completely.

Some people do not have flatrate data-plans or do not want their device to ever go online by mobile data connection. That way the connection popup would not have the mobile internet option and could not be hit accidentally or be activated by other means.

This is not a request to disable the popup that is found here: https://together.jolla.com/question/53124/option-to-disable-the-select-internet-connection-popup/ I actually want that popup.

If you want to make sure phone can't connect you can edit the configuration of mobile data by long-pressing the mobile data switch--> edit. In the upcoming menue you can enter dummy values like. name of apn: whatever.net and username John Doe pw: John So the Phone won't acess mobile data neither when it's willingly activated nor when it's activated accidentially. Could be kind of a workaround

possibly the same request as this one: UI Change to prevent accidentisl activation of mobile data

I am neither asking for workarounds (that void settings) nor do I ask for changing the connection pop-up UX...

That is a known fact, but the answerer is just trying to help (all readers) with a workaround to use possibly until the issue (because it is an issue, almost a bug) is resolved.

And this is neither https://together.jolla.com/question/77665/ux-issue-accidental-activation-of-mobile-network/ nor the other "accidental" request

You could use the "Situations" app from Store. It gives exactly the option you want, among many others.
