Bug Description

whoopsie includes a check to see if the network connection is one often associated with paid data plans. If the connection is, then whoopsie is marked as offline. However, some users have unlimited data plans and may want to have whoopsie always be on-line, while one could use the --assume-online switch perhaps there should be some user interface for this.

<https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ErrorTracker#settings>: "On the phone ... The 'When on Wi-Fi' and 'On any data connection' radio items and caption (bug 1320973) should be exactly the same as in the 'Updates' settings."

Evan suggests talking to mpt about this.

Matthew - Evan indicated that you would probably have an opinion on what an "always uploaded crashes" dialog would look like, if in fact there should be one. Thanks!

So basically we need settings equivalent to those for downloading software updates automatically -- "Never", "When on Wi-Fi", and "On any data connection"? <https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SoftwareUpdates#Phone>

Yes, that is correct.
