Keep Wi-Fi Radio Awake

Controls whether the Wi-Fi radio stays on when the screen goes black (phone gets auto locked).

  • ON (checked): Wi-Fi radio stays on. When the screen goes black:
    1 You stay logged on via Wi-Fi (if you’re in your Wi-Fi network), and
    2 Incoming calls use Wi-Fi instead of mobile data. Radio On uses more battery power. Perhaps choose ON if you have a limited data plan.
  • OFF: Wi-Fi radio is turned off. When the screen goes black:
    1 Ubity UC Mobile re-logs in via the mobile data network, and
    2 Incoming calls use your mobile data plan (unless mobile data isn’t not enabled on your phone and/or in Ubity UC Mobile, then Ubity UC Mobile logs out and you won’t receive calls as long as the phone is dark). Radio Off uses less battery power. Perhaps choose OFF if you have an unlimited data plan.

Auto Start on Boot
