    Problem: During the initial setup of an upgraded phone, Google wants to restore their backup before the phone has a wifi connection established. If you have 20GB of apps installed and a 2GB data plan, this means you'll have a huge overage charge, or a failed restore if the data just gets shut off.

    Is there a way to restore a Google backup AFTER Wifi has been configured, and not use mobile data for it?

    That's odd. On every Samsung I had, the phone asks me to connect to WiFi before even logging in to Google, let alone download the backup.

    Back up a few steps. See if there is setup wifi connection button you missed?
