Mobile Data Limit on a Samsung Phone

Last Update date : Oct 15. 2021

If you have a limited Mobile Data allowance on your mobile phone plan and you need to make sure you don't go over a specific amount - you can set up a Mobile Data usage limit in the settings of your Samsung device. You'll be able to use your phone without worrying about any excess charges from the carrier - and your device will automatically turn off Mobile Data access when the limit is reached. 

You can also think about turning on the Data Saver feature, which will restrict applications from using any Mobile Data when you're not using the app. To find out more visit the page What is Data Saver?
