  5. SET A MONTHLY DATA LIMIT: Select the Limit mobile data usage switch, then select OK.
    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: Your myAT&T account is also another way to manage your wireless usage.
