Enabling background data

Google Play requires you to enable background data in order to function properly.

To enable background data and auto sync on your device:

  1. Press Menu from the home screen, then visit Settings
  2. Under Wireless & Networks, select Data usage
  3. Tap the menu button in the top right corner
  4. Make sure "Restrict background data" is not selected and "Auto-sync data" is selected

Please note that on some devices, you'll find the background data option here: Menu > Settings > Battery data manager > Delivery > Background data.
