Android Data Usage

Tuesday, November 13th, 2012 by | Filed Under: Android

Oh, data usage – what a horrible, horrible thing for me to keep track of. You know, before I had my new Samsung Galaxy S III, the only way I could check my usage was by logging into Verizon’s site or using their bulky, practically useless app? Of course, back then the unlimited data plan still existed, so I didn’t really need to check – but I won’t spend my time crying, because the latest version of Android OS features an easy, on-phone way to keep tabs on my data expenditure!

So, click Settings, and scroll until you see Data Usage.Tap it!

From within this handy utility, you can monitor how much data you’re using, turn mobile data off, set warnings if you’re about to go over your limit and even see what’s been using your precious gigabytes!

Of course, now that I know this exists I’m obsessing.

    Nice app, I hish my company iPhone had an app like that, though requesting and receiving texts with the information isn’t too bad.
