Galaxy Note9 - Manage Data Usage (SM-N960W)

It's the middle of the month and you receive a text saying you only have 10 percent of your data remaining. There's that sinking feeling in your stomach. Luckily, you can keep tabs and set limits on your data usage using your phone's settings. They really come in handy when you're in a data crunch.

Screens and settings available may vary depending on your Canadian wireless service provider and your software version.
