Nobody likes those overages
Data caps seem to have become the norm in the cellular industry. Sure, you can find a carrier who lets you eat as much data as you want, but most carriers and plans have a limit of some sort. We don't like it anymore than you do, but we'll leave that for another discussion. This time around, let's take a peek at a new quick shortcut to see just how much data you've used that comes with Android Lollipop.
If you're somewhere that keeps you from watching the video, here's a quick recap.
Open the notifications on your Lollipop-equipped Android. Then swipe down again to get to the quick-settings panel. You're looking for your cell data icon, and it will have your carrier name underneath. Give it a quick tap.
Pretty nifty, eh?
You can tap the "More Settings" text to be taken to the data usage settings, and "Done" exits the panel.
If you're stuck with a data cap like most of the rest of us, here's a quick way to make sure you don't go over. We're digging into all things Lollipop, and we'll keep bringing more tips, tricks and how-tos because we love doing them as much as you love reading them!
