Why am I prompted for internet connection when using camera in my Nokia Symbian phone?

You may be asked for permission to connect to internet if the option for saving of location information with your photos is turned on. If there's not yet a GPS connection established and the phone uses Assisted GPS (A-GPS) mode to fetch the satellite info, internet connection may be needed to transfer a small amount of data.

If you don't want an internet connection to be established, change one of the settings below:

  • Disable the saving of location information in Camera > Options > Settings > Save location info.
  • Disable the Assisted GPS mode in Menu > Settings > Application settings > Positioning > Positioning methods > Assisted GPS (note that you will still be able to save the location information after changing this setting but it may take longer time to get the GPS fix and the location information may not yet be available when taking the photo),
