    I use a Vodafone USB Mobile Broadband and can download, but, I always have to click download to give windows permission. There are 2 places to change the metered-non metered: 1) Settings app>Devices>Printers & Scanners and 2) Connected devices check both.

    If those are both grayed out, are you using the "RTM" version/build 10..0.10240 Build 10240, or are you an "Insider"? I ask because, Insider versions will not let you update, other than for Defender, when using metered connections.
    Guess there are others with the same issue as myself.

    I couldn't actually test it as I only have Wifi but the regedit method certainly also changes the metered connection switch.

    Anyway it is good is seemed to work. Let us know if it works (or rather if it doesn't) on the next batch as you said.
    Good news. Fresh updates were issued by MS today and i was able to download them using my mobile broadband.

    But i still guess that MS is making a BIG mistake in introducing these changes in PC Windows 10. All these features suit the phones and NOT the desktops/laptops. For example now users are not even given the option of choosing WHEN to download the updates. They just happen when windows finds an unmetered connection.

    I hope this issue wont pop up again. Thanks halasz! :)

    You are welcome. I don't know if you saw this tutorial Windows Update Automatic Updates - Enable or Disable in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    You can decide when (apparently, I've not tried to be honest).

    With a heavy heart i wish to confirm that this (gpedit) method has now stopped working! It may be because of the latest 1511 update.

    Too bad! Now by following the above mentioned (superb) method if you start windows update over your 3G connection, it will just sit their idle and NOTHING will happen. As soon as you reconnet with wifi it resumes downloading updates at full speed.

    Guys we are back to square one. Do we have something on it now? halasz? :)
