Mobile Data Warning on a Samsung Phone

If you keep running over your Mobile Data allowance on a Samsung phone or tablet, you can set a Mobile Data Warning to warn you when you're about to reach the limit of your mobile data allowance. Follow the steps below to set a limit of your choice.

 

You can also set your device to stop using mobile data altogether when the allowance is reached. See the page on Set a Mobile Data usage limit for more information.
