  5. SET MONTHLY DATA LIMIT: From the Mobile data usage screen, select the Settings icon then select the Set data limit switch.
    Note: When the mobile data limit is active and has been reached, the mobile data block will remain in effect until mobile data is manually re-enabled on the device, the limit threshold is changed to a higher value, or a new data usage cycle begins. If you set data usage limits on your device, they do not communicate with AT&T systems. You will still receive AT&T system generated notifications as you approach your data limits.

    Note: To restrict apps from using data while running in the background, swipe down from the Notification bar then select Settings > Connections > Data usage > Data saver > Data saver switch. Your myAT&T account is also another way to manage your wireless usage.
