Data service and wifi auto turn on issue



I do not know you people have noticed or not but...


I have noticed something wrong in sony xperia phones, i am using a Xperia Z1 Compact and a Xperia M.
I have also used samsung and htc andriod phones but there was not issues like this.


1. If Internet Settings are saved and packet data is off and no other internet working not even wifi. the problem I notice is that GPRS still connects a little and then turn off back but actually it is turned off  but still it connects and deducts our AirTime or balance (whatever you call it) this occurs 4 to 6 times daily, it deducts money, as our mobile service provider deducts money for GPRS or EDGE on a single connect whether we use it or not.

And if i delete the internet settings this deducton of money or dataservice usage does not occurs. it is clear that this is due to auto turning on of packet data if there is no other internet found. if wifi is connected this error does not occur.


2. I have also noticed when wifi is turned off in stamina mode and when i get the phone out of sleep or unlock it then wifi connect 5-6 secondss and then disconnects again.  ( I do not know this occurs without Stamina mode, i have not checked that)

But with stamina this is the problem.


now the question is  , why it auto turn on the packet data and utilize the data service and why it auto turn on the wifi and utilize the internet without our permission? 


Can you please resolve these bugs or issues.?





Same issue without STAMINA mode.

are your phones network branded/locked to a carrier?
