Why my Wifi/Data Connection smart action isn't working?

My smart action to save mobile data traffic won't work
Combining Wifi and 3g in a smart action to improve battery consumption and data traffic is a great way to make use of the power of Atooma.

Unfortunately Google has removed access to the Mobile Data switch on android smartphones. We still offer the user the chance to use the DO Mobile Data on/off module thanks to a workaround, but having to deal with Google's limitations we cannot guarantee a 100% accuracy of the module on every android device.

Yet, recent Android OS versions introduced a default preference for Wifi over Mobile connection, if available (the Operative System is also able to switch to 2g/3g/4g for optimal performance). So it may happen that while you have set a smart action to turn off Mobile Data in favor of Wifi, actually your system is already doing so, even if the switches in the settings are set otherwise.
