android – How can I launch mobile network settings screen from my code

Posted by: admin April 23, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I want to launch mobile network settings screen, so that user can enable/disable 3g or data connection. Can anybody tell me which intent I need to use for starting activity.
I used

Intent in = new Intent(android.provider.Settings.ACTION_NETWORK_OPERATOR_SETTINGS ) 

and

Intent in = new Intent(android.provider.Settings.ACTION_DATA_ROAMING_SETTINGS  ). 

but both of these didn’t work.

How to&Answers:

They won’t work because there was a bug that was fixed I think in 2.3.

See https://review.source.android.com/#/c/22229/

You can bypass this using (for NETWORK_OPERATOR_SETTINGS)

Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_MAIN);
intent.setClassName("com.android.phone", "com.android.phone.NetworkSetting");
startActivity(intent);

Replace NetworkSetting with Settings for DATA_ROAMING_SETTINGS

there’s another similar solution described in Error opening mobile network settings menu

UPDATE

I recently tested this and it seems that this workaround is still necessary up to API level 15. Since API level 16 the intents in the question seem to work correctly.

Answer:

I’ll try to answer, dispite of the fact this question was asked a few years ago.
If what you’re trying to do is to launch the “Data usage” screen.
Try this snippet of code. It worked for me.

Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_MAIN);
        intent.setComponent(new ComponentName("com.android.settings",
                "com.android.settings.Settings$DataUsageSummaryActivity"));
        intent.setFlags(Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK | Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_TOP);
        startActivity(intent);

Answer:

There are two possibilities:

It brings up the overall network settings and from there the user can go to mobile networks

startActivity(new Intent(android.provider.Settings.ACTION_WIRELESS_SETTINGS)); 

As Zharf suggested:

It brings up the Mobile network settings and from there the user can enable network

Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_MAIN);
intent.setClassName("com.android.phone","com.android.phone.NetworkSetting");
startActivity(intent);

Answer:

In my case (android 9) this intent lands directly on mobile data settings:

val intent = Intent(Settings.ACTION_DATA_ROAMING_SETTINGS)
context.startActivity(intent)
