How do I set my device so that it only downloads software updates via Wi-Fi?

Last Update Date : Jan 09. 2018

If you are on a limited data plan with your network operator you may wish to prevent software updates from consuming large quantities of your data allowance. To make sure software update downloads only take place through a Wi-Fi connection (and thereby don't consume any of the data allowance you have from your network operator) follow these steps:

 

1. From the Home screen touch App Icon Apps.

 

GS4 Home Screen - Apps Icon Framed

 

2. Touch GS4 Settings Icon Settings (you may need to swipe left or right to locate it first).

 

GS4 Apps Menu - Settings Icon Framed

 

3. Touch About device (depending on your version of Android you may need to touch the More tab first).

 

4. Touch Software update.

 

5. Touch the check box next to Wi-Fi only to mark it with a tick.
