I found these related questions on the same issue:

But, my problem is the graph doesn't show up the limit lines. How to disable the notification now?

When I try to set mobile data limit I'm getting the message from the second screenshot and it backs to the first image. It is not enabling.


I fixed it editing the netpolicy.xml file manually. Increased the warning limit to 4GB in 3 places as shown in the image and rebooted. Then the notification went-off:

  1. Remount /system to make it writable (mount -o remount,rw /system)
  2. Edit /system/netpolicy.xml file as root:
  3. Remount /system read-only (mount -o remount,ro /system) or reboot the device

You have to check the set mobile data limit to show those lines. As seen in the image below:

Check the box!

  • @Fasna have you also tried enabling the statistics (setting that switch to "On")? Just thinking aloud (it shouldn't be related, but who knows).

  • @Fasna I've never seen the bars missing. But there's a comparable issue on some LG devices, using the wrong interface for battery stats by default. I worked around that one using an "activity explorer" like the one built-in to "Apex Launcher", or the stand-alone Activity Launcher, exploring the "Settings" app for available "activities". You could try that, maybe there's an "alternative activity" hidden where the bars are enabled. No guarantees, however.
