Re: can't download apps from google playstore without wifi .

Hi and welcome to the community! Since you're new please be sure that you have checked out our Discussion guidelines.

 

Are you able to download other things using mobile networks? Such as pictures from websites for instance?

If yes, try to clear data for Google Play.

Settings > Apps > All > Google Play.

 

If not, You may want to check you APN settings or contact your network operator.

Start Google Play Store app. On the left top of the screen, click the three stripes which open the menu bar. Scroll to "Settings". There, under Apps Updating, select the option that says it has to do so anytime. Problem solved.
