This might be a replica, I have searched and not found a similar question.

I currently have the HTC One M8 and am planing on getting a 1GiB Data pack, knowing me who uses internet over the top I would like my internet to get cut at lets per say at the peak of 1GiB. So as soon as I reach it, it gets cut off fully.

  1. I have tried the Android Data limiter and it always fails me.
  2. I have not found any reliable applications (I will pay if worthy)
  3. Location is Ontario and my provider is Fido

I use AVG antivirus security which has an option to limit the used mobile data(not wifi data). I fill information about data pack i.e amount and validity then give the option when to turn the mobile data off (as used in my case it is 90%) then it ask if I want to further use the data..

Hope it helps you..


Post-ICS Android devices have in-built Data Limiter. Do this from Settings ~> Data Usage (can vary based on Android version).

Your phone has an option to limit data built in. Go to Settings -> Data Usage and you can set Data Limits as well as a warning for when you have reached a certain amount. If you don't like this there are also third party apps like Onavo Count that let you measure and limit your data usage

  • Well Onavo Data Count is an application I mentioned that you could try – Dheeraj Y Jun 7 '15 at 4:37
  • Also by if it doesnt work you mean that it is allowing the data limit to be exceeded by a small margin resulting in overages, you can set the limit lower than your actual data limit incase your carrier accounts for data differently. – Dheeraj Y Jun 7 '15 at 4:38
