How do I Monitor Data Usage on my Samsung Galaxy Rush?

Your mobile device has a built-in Data usage application. The application will show how much data you have used and which apps or services are responsible for your data usage. You can also set mobile data limits, view Wi-Fi® usage, restrict background data usage, and toggle data roaming usage on or off.

    Data usage shown in the Data usage app is measured by your mobile device. Your carrier's data usage accounting may differ.  

  • Accessing Data Usage

    To access the Data usage app, from the Home screen, touch Menu  > Settings  > Data usage.

  • Managing Data Usage

    Place a check mark next to Mobile data to turn mobile data On or Off. Mark Limit mobile data usage option to disable the data connection when the limit is reached. Mark Alert me about data usage to set an alert when you are getting close to the limit. To adjust the limit or alert, touch the corresponding bar on the graph and drag it up or down. Adjust the date range shown in the chart by editing Data usage cycle.

    You can touch Menu  to access the following additional options:

    • Restrict background data: Mark this option to restrict your device's use of data for background tasks unless your device is connected to a Wi-Fi® access point.
    • Auto sync data: Mark this option to automatically synchronize your accounts.
    • Show Wi-Fi usage: Mark this option to show an additional tab covering the Wi-Fi data usage on your device.

    The list of applications shows you the applications that have used data on your device, and how much data use each application is responsible for during the data usage cycle selected. Touch an app to get more information about it, to View app settings, and to Restrict background data for each application individually.
