Dropbox camera upload feature is a handy and useful feature when it comes to uploading your phone or SD cards photos automatically. Sometimes while working around with Dropbox camera upload feature, you may encounter a message that reads "waiting for faster network". There are three possibilities why you may see this message.
Camera uploads display the "waiting for a faster network" message when your device is:
- Waiting for a 3G or faster connection (4G, WiFi, etc.)
- In roaming mode (in this case the Dropbox app will not use your mobile data plan)
- Connected to WiFi and data (2G or less), and there is an issue with your WiFi connection
In order to overcome this situation, please verify that you have a strong WiFi connection. If this does not resolve the issue please try signing out and back into the Dropbox app/account. To do so, follow the process below:
- Open the Dropbox app.
- Tap Recents.
- Tap the gear icon.
- Tap Settings.
- Tap Sign out from Dropbox.
