A client of iTandCoffee recently asked why he was getting an error message saying that there was 'No internet available' and that his 'Mobile Data is Turned Off' whenever he was away from home or work.
He was not aware of having done anything to turn off his mobile data.
In fact, he had inadvertently tapped a new control in his Control Centre - one that allows Mobile Data to be easily turned on and off.
This new control (indicated by the red arrow in the first image) was added in iOS 11.
So, if you find you are suddenly without mobile data, swipe up from the bottom of the screen to view your Control Centre. (On an iPhone X, swipe down from top right corner.)
If the mobile data symbol does not have a green background, tap it to turn it back on.
