In some instances, an a la mode mobile app won't connect to the Internet through your iOS device. While the cause isn't always known, we want to give you some basic troubleshooting steps to try to resolve the issue.
- Restart your device
- The majority of connectivity issues on mobile devices are resolved with restarting your device. Once you've turned your device back on, try to connect to the app again.
- Try a different location
- Move to a different location and try to connect to the app again. Connectivity can depend heavily on your device's position in relation to the nearest cell tower, so moving can affect connection. If the second location works yet the original continues to cause an error message, contact your service provider to report the issue.
- Toggle Wi‑Fi off and on
