Bug Description

Ubuntu one should only connect automatically if I connected my laptop to a wired or wifi network, and not connect if I connect to my LIMITED mobile broadband! Because now I have to quit ubuntu one to prevent automatic syncronization before I connect to the mobile network...

Me too! Someone told me at the platform sprint this week that NM can
tell us if it's a normal connection or a 3G connection. If the NM
interface doesn't include that info, we should patch NM to include it
and send the patch upstream.

Hy!

This is a quote from http://projects.gnome.org/NetworkManager/ :
Application Integration:
...
"If you're not online, your computer shouldn't try to update itself, and
when you're on a mobile broadband network, it probably shouldn't either.
With NetworkManager, software knows where it is, and how it's connected."

so it should work :)
