How to prevent those excess data charges on your Android Smartphone

Have you ever received an excess data charge on your monthly cellular bill? You can easily prevent this unwelcome surprise on your Android (4.0 and above) smartphone.
Go to Settings > Data Usage. Check the "Set Mobile Data Limit" Option.

Adjust the red horizontal bar to set your Data cap, the maximum amount of data allotted per month. Adjust the orange horizontal bar to set a warning when you've passed a chosen threshold, so you don't reach your data cap.

The two vertical bars show your specific data usage for times in the monthly cycle.

Of course, the tracked data usage of your smartphone may vary slightly from your carrier’s tracking.
