Should customer express concerns over attempting to access the Market Application on his LG Android phone and be given the following message:

“Market needs Background Data to be enabled" instruct customer as per following:



Go to phone Settings


Click on “Accounts & sync


Enable “Background data” if the box is un-checked


If “Background data” box is checked, disable feature and then re-enable it.


Some phones feature “Power Saving” mode that have a nasty habit of disabling “Background Data” when it proceeds with saving power. Should it be the case for customer, let him know:


Go to phone Settings


Click on “Power


Click on “Power saver settings


Uncheck “Disable background data” box to avoid situation from repeating itself.
