Manage Data Usage on U.S. Cellular Galaxy Note8

It’s the middle of the month and you receive that data plan text saying you only have 10 percent data remaining. There goes that sinking feeling in your stomach. Luckily, you can stop that in its tracks by keeping tabs on your data usage and setting limits to conserve data. Your Note8 makes that a breeze with three useful settings. It really comes in handy when you’re in a data crunch.

Monitor Data Usage

It’s September 15. Do you know where your data is? Track your data usage to make sure you never run out. Read on to learn how.

  1. Navigate to Apps > Settings.

  2. Touch Search, and then search for and select Data usage.

  3. You can view your Mobile data usage or Wi-Fi data usage.

    • To view your data usage over the mobile network, touch Mobile data usage.

Turn Data Saver On or Off

  1. Navigate to Apps > Settings.

  2. Touch Search, and then search for and select Data usage.

  3. Touch Billing cycle and data warning.

  4. The following settings are available:

    • Start billing cycle on: Set the date when your billing cycle starts to accurately keep track of your mobile data usage.

    • Set data warning: Enable or disable to set a warning on your data usage.

    • Data warning: You will receive a warning when there is only a specified amount of data left on your billing cycle.
