We explain how to set a data limit on your Nexus 4 to ensure you don't run up huge bills

The Nexus 4 is finally back in stock, if you're willing to wait the 6-7 weeks it takes for delivery, and has quite possibly over taken the iPhone 5 in terms of how coveted it has become. If you're one of the lucky ones who've managed to get their hands on one during the first wave, you've probably got to grips with most of its functions and taken advantage of the fact that it's one of the most powerful devices on the market right now.

However, if you're on a price plan which doesn't include unlimited data, you might find that the apps constantly receiving data in the background can really bump your bill up each month, so we've put together a guide to show you how to set a limit to how much data your device will use.

  1. Hit ‘Settings'
  2. Go to ‘Wireless and Networks'
  3. Choose ‘Data Usage'
  4. Put a tick on the ‘Set mobile data limit' checkbox
  5. Read the message that pops up and choose ‘OK' if you're happy to proceed
  6. A red line will appear at the top of the graph
  7. Press and drag the red line to the level that you wish to set your data limit at

When you reach this limit, your device will automatically switch off mobile data and you'll only be able to access the internet in a Wi-Fi hotspot, or if you adjust the limit
