    I've no knowledge of that phone, but usually the data meters in the Settings are tied to a monthly cycle which you can set from the same place you view them (look for a 3 dots or gear symbol if the setting isn't obvious). Changing that will let you start the counting from wherever.

    Third-party data monitoring apps may offer more flexibility or features.

    Look in the Settings menu for a 'Billing cycle' option.
    Different phone models have variations but just looking at my phone, in the Settings >> Data Usage menu, and tapping on 'Billing cycle' brings up a window to change the start date of every month. Check one of his monthly carrier bills for the start date and set that in his phone.

    Have checked the settings and looked at the manual.
    My Nokia Phone doesnt have that facility. GFs Iphone does with a reset statistics function.
    This OPPO f1s is defesting me. Must be WAY TO RESET THE MOBILE DATA STATISTICS?

    mikedt 你好

    An Oppo phone should have it in settings somewhere, although it might not be called "billing cycle". I've had Oppo phones before, and they definitely do have it.

    This is on my Huawei, and is called "Data plan" in the phone's settings.
