    Controlling data usage

    You can keep track of the amount of data transferred to and from your device over your mobile data or Wi-Fi® connection during a given period. For example, you can view the amount of data used by individual applications. For data transferred over your mobile data connection, you can also set data usage warnings and limits to avoid additional charges.

    Note

    Adjusting data usage settings can help you keep greater control over data usage but cannot guarantee the prevention of additional charges.
