I just experienced a game that froze after replacing the original network from Wifi to the data network (4G).
I was quite disappointed because my flight failed because the game did not respond after taking the action
I have seen simple YouTube clips failing when moving from WiFi to mobile data. Some serious network traffic re-routing needs to take place, when you move from a fixed internet connection to a mobile one. Plenty of room for error if you ask me, and I would not blame IF to much for loosing it during actions like these.
I’m interested to hear if others have successfully been able to ‘roam’ from a fixed internet connection (WiFi) to mobile data, during a flight.
Anton is correct.
Normally, it works perfectly fine changing connection source during an active session.
I’ve done it plenty of times, and it’s worked 9 out of 10 times.
But it comes with a risk, for the reasons Anton mentioned.
I’ve never heard of the app crashing due to this though, the most common thing to happen is that you are simply unable to re-establish a connection to the Live server.
I wouldn’t worry too much about this happening again or being a recurring issue, it was most likely a one time thing!
