    I have a Nextbook Ares 8 tablet i purchased three days ago. Within those days I've noticed an on-going problem with Google Play, getting a message saying "Background Data Disabled Google Play Store needs background data to be enabled” followed by Learn more or Quite options below. Every sites I've been on mentions a enable data button under Data Usage or Power Saver Mode options in settings...well i don't have that, just "Network Restrictions". I Enable Google Play Store and i still receive the message. I've found no help nowhere else on the internet asking this same question. Can someone help me please since this is the #1 tablet community?

    Welcome to the forum

    Are you connected to WiFi? Can you open a browser and go to any WEB site?

    Yes and for some reason there is an exclamation point next to the WiFi icon.

    It doesn't sound like it's connected. Tap the connection and tell it to forget and try again until it says connected.

    Its connected. I'm on it now but the exclamation point is still there. Could that possibly be the reason of the background data problem?

    Yes. It may be an issue with the router. Try restarting it.

    Done. Still there. I've reset my tablet, cleared cache/data for google play apps and I still got the message. It won't even let me use google play ( after data message) until i clean cache & data.

    You have a couple other options. The first one I would try is doing a factory reset on the router, or at least stopping any security long enough to check it. The other one would be to find a public WiFi somewhere and test it there.

    OK. What would I check the router for exactly?

    There should be a spot to disable the security. I can't suggest where to look but if that works there are some changes you might be able to make that would allow you to enable it again.

    Didn't mean for extra caps. I'll do the router security but my issue is how to enable data on my tablet.

    I'm doing everything I know how to do to get you on WiFi so you can get something done. The specs on your tablet say 3-4G (pay as you go, contract may be required for service) and WiFi. Those are 2 different things. You may be talking about 3-4G data but WiFi should allow you to do the same things. I have no idea if you actually have a data plan or not. One step at a time. You may in fact need to purchase a SIM card or a data plan for the 3-4G.

    Thank you, there is no SIM card slot. I have WiFi on, it works. But by data, i'm talking about the background data. How do i enable the background data? The instructions I've seen on the internet for this issue all say to simply touch "Allow background data" button. It's not that simple for me because i don't have that button anywhere in Data Usage area. I've attached a photo to show you the message i get in the Google Play Store. I hope it can clarify what I'm talking about.
