    Even with unlimited data plan, there are unwanted apps that run in the background, some even turn themselves on (automatically) while in background, these apps will consume your data needlessly. ‘What does this option do’ & Why use it or What would a user activate it for… GIVE EXAMPLES!

      All this does is keep your mobile radio on at all times, for instant switching of Wi-Fi to mobile data, so that your internet connection is not interrupted. It’s analogous to an UPS with a computer.
