In the playstore app on my phone, the Auto-update apps is already set to Auto-update apps over Wi-Fi only. On my PC browser, I'm logon with the same account as in my phone. When I click on the install button of an app, my phone on 3G download the app almost immediately. My setup are the same as you but I'm getting a different result as you've mentioned.

Would like to highlight again, apps that have been installed on my phone only download updates when my phone wifi turn on, I would like to have this behavior to apply when I clicked install new apps on my PC browser.

I can't test it right now because providers do not appear to be aware of thw existence of reinforced concrete houses. (G, 1 bar... If I'm lucky.)

But try this:

Turn on Restrict Background data for Google Play Store, Google Play Services and Media under settings > Data Usags > the app in the list > restrict background data (all the way at the bottom).

The simplest solutions are often the cleverest. They are also usually wrong.

After setting the restrict background data, it seems to work as what I wanted.

Thanks for your help!
