I'm aware the network operator assigns an ip address to the mobile data connection. Also that WiFi would need it's own, wherever that may be.
My point is that the disappearing data has been happening for a long time.
If it's due to a function of Android, Vodacom need to fix it.
I'm not saying they should fix Android.
Let's lose semantics.
semantics? i think we are talking about different things here. im not interested in the wifi.
im interested to know if the operators network layer is still active when its supposedly disabled on the source and if they can see an address since they can trace data to a destination. or any layer for that matter. it could also be a reason why/how the different operators count data, one operator could connect/disconnect a link in a different way to another.
