Live view only works on WiFi not mobile data EE

Been struggling to get live view working on EE mobile data on Sony android. Spent an hour on call to Ring but still nothing. Signal strengths fine, reinstalled apps, devices, deleted conflicting programmes, reset network and mobile data, etc.etc. Works fine on iPad and on another android phone. Records clips but live view just circles trying to connect. Pretty dirty app by looks of it - with the vast volume of issues how can these products be fit for market? I’ll give it one more go before I chuck in the bin unless supplier will refund. Any thoughts and please don’t send the stock range of things to consider as done them all. Wasting money on the Protect Plan for two doorbells also.

Sorry to hear about this, @Timpot! I will certainly share this feedback with our teams here for further investigation. As you mentioned Live View working on the Ipad and another Android, are either of these devices using EE mobile data as well, or just the Sony Android? Additionally, does your Sony Android device work if wifi only is enabled on that mobile device?

I have the same problem. Video available on WiFi; but no video available when mobile data is turned on. This is when WiFi is also on. I have a MotoG Android 10 and use a non-VPN Century Link WiFi. Mobile data is through Verizon. Reasons why no video?

Thanks for confirming that, @DavidAZ! Just to double check, there is also not a vpn on your mobile device right? When using an Android mobile device, I always recommend checking for any Android apps that might conflict with the Ring app.

I have the exact same issue. All works fine on my mobile when connected to WiFi but when on EE mobile data live view doesn’t work.
I tested from another network and it worked fine.
Seems EE does some filtering which affects Ring LiveView but customers aren being ping pong between both Ring and EE without any help.
Clearly Ring knows what ports are needed and check if they are blocked on EE but instead support only check my RRSI as per their script.
Very disappointed we can’t get any support

I just checked the list of apps that “interferes” with the Ring app ---- you would never believe that I cleared out my Zedge app and now the ring app works perfectly fine!! I would suggest that if anyone is having issues that they check that list and go through their phone and clear them out.

Has anyone found an actual fix to this frustrating problem? I am experiencing the same issue on my Samsung s21+ 5G and on EE NETWORK.

Hi Neighbors! Can you check your phones settings to see if you are using IPv4 or IPv6? Try switching these settings to see if that will allow live view. Also, what type of phone are you using and what version of the Ring app or Rapid Ring app is installed?
