Change DNS settings for mobile data?

Is it possible to change the DNS settings for mobile data, or only when it's connected to Wifi?

Yeah, we've mentioned Hola Free VPN a few times recently:

- How to watch the WWE Network on your UK Android smartphone or tablet
- Watch US Netflix on your UK Android smartphone or tablet
- How to access US South Park Studios from your UK Android smartphone or tablet

Sorry, I should've warned: cheap plug alert ;)
as long as...you know, no ripping off, etc :p

Which phone/OS are you using?

Hi, we have Android and iPhone in our place, more of a general wonderment as I'd been playing around with U.S. Netflix!

A while ago I got a one month trial of VPNinTouch.
It works very well. It is absolutely idiot-proof. Mind you, it isn't free, but you can use it on multiple devices - they have versions for iOS, Android, WP, Windows and Mac.

Since I usually use devices with different OSs, and often change devices or use one just for a few days, it was awfully convenient.

Upto Android 4.2 as long as you have root there's plenty of apps to do it for you but after some changes in Android 4.3 it broke most of them and haven't seen it fixed yet so anything later than that I have no idea if it's possible.

The easiest thing to use on Android is Hola VPN as you can easily switch regions for any you want.

Unfortunately I can't really help with iPhone.

Ah, yes... Hola... I think Hola is similar to VPN inTouch that I used on an iPhone, iPad and Mac.

Yeah, just a VPN that happens to be free on Android, perfect if you only need it to access Netflix etc.

I use ZenMate on my Browser and it's pretty awesome and free.
They have a Mobile product too 500MB for free and Unlimited is slightly cheaper than VPN inTouch on a monthly basis (same price for annual)
