These days it’s easy to over spend on data or reach your data limit without even realising it. Just making use of a few practical tips can help you save your data for the things you really love doing.
How to save on data costs
In your settings menu simply disable automatic updates for all your apps. Make sure all emails and chat apps are not set to automatically sync or download content. If this function isn’t turned off your apps will constantly refresh and cost you more data.
Most of these platforms already use a lot of data but playing videos only increases your consumption. By disabling autoplay you are limiting downloads and therefore your data usage.
Widgets and apps constantly update with new information even when you’re not using them. By removing them from your home screen you can limited any unnecessary consumption.
By knowing your regular usage you can be aware when something isn’t right. You can use the My Vodafone App to keep track of your monthly data usage or check the total amount of cellular data used by accessing your phone’s settings. You can also use our Data Calculator to determine which data bundles suit your needs and save yourself from being caught without any data.
