Does anyone know how to disable "data saver" mode in 4.4?

(I'd also be psyched if there was a way to automatically download all email attachments over mobile data.)

If anyone knows how to do this and has a minute to share, greatly appreciated -- thanks!

I don't think the Maxx has a built in data saver mode. Is something appearing in your notifications window? Also, for the email attachments, are you referring to the email client or gmail?

No, I can't stand GMail. I'm using the stock Android mail app.

It mentions a "data saver mode" in various situations.

For example, if I try to email a large attachment, it tells me it will remain in the outbox until Wi-Fi is available because of "data saver mode."

Another example, whenever someone sends me an email with an attachment, I always have to open the email and then manually download the attachment.

I have unlimited data and am rarely on WiFi so I'm looking to turn off this "data saver mode" so everything will download automatically so when I open an email the attachment will already be there.

Or when I need to email with a large attachment the "data saver mode" won't make it wait in the outbox until I can get get to Wi-Fi.

And anyone willing to help me figure this out, please don't tell me to switch to GMail or use K-9, etc. I really hope to figure this out using the stock client by disabling "data saver mode."

Any hhelp appreciated - thanks!

Ah, now I understand where you are coming from. There is a whole Data Usage section that manages that under Settings > Account Name (see attached)

Thanks for the quick reply.

Yeah I know that screen.

I have download size set to max and auto download enabled but still have the issues I mentioned at the start of the thread.

Switch to another mail client, like K9 Mail, maybe?

Ever figured out?
My husband is having this same issue. He tried to download a pdf and gets this error. I've been doing research, but haven't found anything helpful.
