    Default Anyone know how to turn off the 'data warning'?

    For those on an unlimited plan, we could care less about how much data we're using. I got a 'data usage' warning in the message bar at the top. I was able to temporarily get rid of it by changing the warning threshold. But I don't see a way to turn it off entirely.

    Has anyone found a way to do that?

    Setting>Data Usage> in the graph move the orange line higher

    EDIT: Sorry reread your post, not sure how to disable totally.

    Yeah, I did NotJustAPhone and it still gives me the warning. Try moving your data limit line down all the way, even with the box unchecked, and you'll see the warning in the message area.

    I just wound up raising the orange line to a crazy limit of about 200gigs or something.

    I see what you mean. Got the data notification after moving the setting lower. I had moved the data warning threshold to 20 gigs when I played around with the settings after getting the phone. Since I also have unlimited data, I just set it back to 20 gigs. Most I've ever used has been around 12 gigs so that should keep the warning away and if I ever hit 20 gigs in a cycle would like to know that.

    I agree that there should be a way to get rid of the threshold all together. You never know, you may end up being able to get rid of it in the next update.

    I also got this message in the beginning. I thought, this message was just to scare people. However, withing a few days, I was really fed of this message. Remember there is nothing to worry about this message. You can do the following to get rid of this message.

    Go into settings - data usage and turn off set mobile data limit.

    Drag the horizontal warning line on the data usage graph down to zero. You'll get a warning in your notification area which you can simply swipe away. You shouldn't then get another warning.

    Sliding the limit all the way down to zero doesn't work, or at least it doesn't work on my S5. After receiving the stupid, naggy notification about data limits last month, I googled and found this page, and did the zero thing. A month later, and the notification came back.

    What your actually getting a warning from is the samsung+ app device health alerts.
    Go to your all apps search for samsung open samsung+ (white background with blue red purple transitioning + symbol) click the sandwich button upper left, go to notifications find the alert for high data usage and uncheck it.

    This is also the place for the little reminder that you are on an insecure wifi or might wamt to reboot your phone cuz its been on for 7 days etc.

    How about you uncheck limit mobile data use. Then you won't get the nag message
