Any ideas?

    1. Hi Mohamad Mahdi Swaidan,
      Thanks for coming and also I'm so sorry for late answer.
      So, did you install any data-saver-related app(seems your problem is caused by an app that tried to save more data for you) in your phone? If so, try to uninstall it and then see whether it helps :)

    2. Hi
      I have the same problem and I don't install any app like that... I need a solution
      thank you

    3. Hi Hussein Saad,
      Thanks for coming and I'm so sorry for late answer.
      Did it happen on an app or some apps? If it just a single app(while you didn't block notification on this app) try to take a look at data usage menu by going to Settings> tap "Connections" tab> tap "Data usage"> scroll down and then tap the app (which the notification is blocked). Scroll down, if any, clear the box next to "Restrict background data". See whether it helps :)
