How To Get Rid Of The Data Usage Warning On Android


Does your phone have a “data usage warning” in the notification bar that you just can’t seem to get rid of? No problem. In this quick how-to, I show you how to get rid of it (for good) in just a few simple steps:

  1. Go to your phone’s main settings.
  2. Tap on “data usage.”
  3. Increase the warning threshold (the orange bar) to above the amount of data you’ve already used.

The reason why the alert is in your notification bar is because you actually set it up to do just that. You may have forgotten that you originally set this data limit warning, or you may have not known how it would always show up in the notification bar regardless of what you do. Either way, the solution above should help you out.
