Default Data usage warning

I just hit the 2GB mark for data use (only had the phone for 3 days, lol), I recieved a notification (shown below) warning me about my data use. When I click the notification, it brings me to the data usage menu. I have unlimited data, so I'm not concerned, but I can't get this notification to go away.

You can move the warning limit. I have mine set somewhere around 50GB; I doubt I'll hit it.

Did you swipe it to the right?

Also, assuming that you are over your alert limit.... you might have to turn it off or set it higher.

Interesting find. I'm on unlimited also.

Ok, fixed it. I didnt realize I could make adjustments to that graph. I set it to 59GB, a new goal! Lol...

And it wouldnt let me swipe the notification away.

Yeah, when I hit my 2GB mark I couldn't figure out how to get rid of it fast enough, lol. Dragged it up to 50ish. Not sure if there's a way to totally disable the "warning". Not that I would go over 50 but still

I don't know, maybe it's the "new toy" syndrome but I've clocked 5 GB in the last 4 days!

Part of that was troubleshooting, but a lot of it is 4G streaming. Glad I have unlimited!

I had the same exact problem this morning. I just hit 2GB, and could not clear it, so I moved the bar to 3GB.

I just got the warning also. Couldnt figure out how to get that triangle in the upper left part of the screen to go away. Moving the graph up to 50 gb worked.

Thank you search button.

It's that extra G, lol... When I went from the OG Droid to the TB I had the same data usage jump. Not sure why this is but it seems like LTE uses a significantly larger amount of data then 3G does. I hit my 2 gigs last night as well lol.

Just as a side note, you can also change your bill cycle date in the data usage settings in the settings menu. May help some, may be worse for others lol. I noticed mine was default to reset the 1st of every month, so I went in and changed it just for kicks. And I love that you can disable data at certain levels. I soooo wish I had a friend with a Nexus that I could prank with that!

I wish the VZW Data widget was available for the Nexus I liked that one . I'm unlimted but it was cool to be able to see how much I actually used . I think it was far more accurate then the ICS one. I've had my phone for 6days and it says I've used 15gb of data . I usually used between 8-12gb a month on my Rezound and Thunderbolt . So I find it hard to believe that I'll use over 60gb with this phone my usage hasn't really changed

Everyone that goes over 4 GB this month check in next month to let us know of you're being throttled please.

I've averaged about 10gb a month since launch of the thunderbolt (8months) and have never been throttled
