    If I go to Settings / Data usage, I can't change Data usage cycle on either Mobile or Wi-Fi tab. I know I was able to do this on the first day. Now if I tap the field, it only opens a grayish rectangle with the current cycle written there (which is what's already written in the field without touching it). Is this a bug, or do I need to perform some "obscure" motion to make it happen?

    How many months of tracking has been stored already?
    You may need to scroll down a bit to see where it says to change cycle,

    A little less than two weeks actually. Scroll down where? The bottom part is filled with usage graph (where I'm able to change the vertical lines to limit the interval within the data usage cycle defined above), followed by data used by separate apps.
    Is it at all possible to define the data usage cycle as one calendar month (or 24h or 1 week, for instance)? Something like "Mar 20 - Apr 19" (in my mobile data tab) has no real practical value.

    I tried, but all I get was a small rectangle (as mentioned in the original post), containing the current cycle:

    I'm certain there was more when I first tried it.

    Have mobile data enabled before opening data usage. Then check the drop down menu.

    I finally figured it out.
    - When you're in the Data Usage section, tap the bottom left capacitative button and select Settings.
    - Uncheck 'Auto Sync Data'.
    - Now when you tap the Data usage cycle, 'Change Cycle' should appear at the bottom of the drop down menu.

    I had this problem on my nexus 4:

    I discovered that I had to have data enabled but wifi off ... When I had them both on (fiddling with phone as usual) I only saw the dates for the last three cycles ... Once I knocked wifi off the 'change cycle' miraculously appeared on the data tab :-)

    To see the wi-fi tab when you're on the Data Usage screen open settings and enable Wi-Fi.

    Only this one helped me fix this up! Only ludicrous interval of, like, 15th to 14th next month was enabled in the Data Usage menu, with no option to change the cycle.

    So, turn the Data Switch up in the Notification panel, and THEN go into Data Usage menu, and - voila! The 'Change cycle' option magically appeared.

    Yes, it works, but it is stuck in May to June, we have the 13th of July now. It should be June to July ??

    Just hold down the lock button and restart the device. The data cycle should renew then.

    This is exactly what I've been searching for an answer to:
    How do you change the data usage cycle for WI-FI?
    It's easy to do for Mobile.
    If the data usage cycle can't be changed, where in the world does it get the values?
    Mine shows the following data usage cycles for Wi-Fi (yes I know it's free, but I still want to have it match my Mobile data usage cycle):

    Mar 6 - Apr 3
    Feb 6 - Mar 6
    Jan 9 - Feb 6
    Dec 12, 2013 - Jan 9, 2014

    Go to google and type in "on android samsung galaxy s5 how do you change cycle under the wi-fi data usage tab". Or something similar to that. I found the answer within that info. The answer is you can't . I know, I was disappointed too.

    After some testing backandforth, i've found that if one press the Menu button and then Mobile Hotspots, then Back button without touching anything inside Mobile Hotspots, then the Data Cycle can be changed by touching "Data usage cycle", both for Mobile Data and for WiFi Data.

    Not the most obvious way to get things working ...

    Thanks SqueakShow, but I want to add something:
    1. Activate Data Usage.
    2. In the Data Usage section, tap the bottom left capacitative button and Uncheck 'Auto Sync Data'
    3. Now close the Data Usage app. I mean close it also from the background.
    4. Open Settings again and Data Usage section. Now 'Change Cycle' should appear at the bottom of the drop down menu.
    5. Activate 'Auto Sync Data' and Turn Off Data Usage if you don´t need it now.
