    Settings > Connections > scroll down to Data Usage > tap the 3 vertical dots in the upper right corner > tap "Restrict Background Data".

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for responding, but the only options are Hide WiFi, Mobile Networks, Mobile Hotspots, Show units and Help. There's no option to restrict background data.

    Just curious here, I have the VzW SGN.IV and is this what you're seeking to secure (in this case "restrict"?)?




    Don't know if the above representation is of some help to you. Hope you find what you're wanting to do.
