On my Nexus 4 with stock Lollipop, I can check the usage data month by month, but my subscription is every 30 days (around the 15th).

New contracts last 28 days, so there is more difference between real interval and a month.

Is it possible to set a personal interval (the start and the during) to check it?

  • As far as I remember, even there is no setting to change the interval since JellyBean, and I'm afraid it's impossible to do it on stock ROM. Most possible, you have to use 3rd-party apps. – Andrew T. Dec 6 '14 at 6:03

Unfortunately I don't have enough reputation in this sub-stackexchange, so I will answer instead of commenting.

This options is not available in Android (up to this date), but there is an issue (which you can star*), which has unfortunately been marked obsolete with no reason whatsoever. Maybe it can be rediscovered if enough people star it.

P.s.: Here is a similar issue which has not been marked obsolete (yet).

Edit: Another trick (which does not really give you the desired effect) might be to use an app from your provider (these often show you how much data you have left).

*Makes it more likely that it might be implemented at some point.


Go to data usage in setting, and click the drop-down that says some interval (5 Dec-4 Nov etc) and choose "Change cycle..." to change the start date.

    It works for the starting day, but I am not able to set the during (30 days is not a month, but there are also week subscriptions) – Ale Dec 6 '14 at 0:04

    I disagree with -1 vote because it reply to a part of the question – Ale Dec 6 '14 at 7:44

I found the "Change cycle" option today. It's at the bottom of the drop-down

I had to scroll past every month from 2014 to 1970 (~520 months)

    It's the same as saloalv's answer actually. – Andrew T. Dec 16 '14 at 7:43
  • Andrew T, it's not the same answer – johgru Dec 16 '14 at 10:59
  • Ale, I had to scroll past 1970 – johgru Dec 16 '14 at 10:59
  • Johgru, if it isn't the same answer as saloalv's, please add some additional information. – Stephen Schrauger Dec 16 '14 at 21:27
