Set mobile data limit

Hey everyone

I was wondering if it is possible to set a limit for the mobile data usage?
Apparently it is possible in lollipop 5.1 but I just don’t seem to be able to figure out how.

Thanks for your help!


It’s in settings>data usage. There you can set a warning and a limit for the data usage, by switching on “set cellular data limit”. It shows a graph with a black horizontal line (a warning) and a red line (the limit). You can move these lines to set the values.


You can also click on them to enter the data amount as a number.

But I have not found a way to turn the warning line off (e. g. when you get a warning by SMS or you have an unlimited data plan).

When you click on the date picker, you can also set the day when the data usage statistics is reset (only when data is enabled, and not on Wi-Fi).

I rebooted the phone and all of a sudden the limit data option was available :smile:
