    In settings under the first tab connections, there is the setting "Data Usage" that tracks how much data the phone has been using. My cycle right now is the 18th to the 17th of each month but I don't see a way where I can change this time frame. Anyone know how?

    In vanilla Android, all you have to do is touch the dates to change them--did you try that? I don't know if it's different in TouchWiz.

    What carrier are you on? On Verizon all you have to do is click on data usage cycle then choose change cycle.

    I'm with Telus in Canada. As you can see with my screen shot I don't have the change cycle option. This is my first month only since I had this phone but I would still believe this option would be available to me.

    I was having the same problem and am also with Telus in Canada. If you haven't found the solution yet, i found that if i turned off both my mobile data and my wi-fi and then clicked on the cycle date the option to "Change Cycle" would appear. Hope this helps.

    Enable Mobile data.
    Exit the Data usage settings app.
    Tap the spinner below the Set mobile data limit checkbox.
    Tap Change cycle....
    Change Date of each month (I prefer the first day of the month, 1)
    Hit Set.
    Undo Mobile data if necessary (e.g. if on Wi-Fi).

    I had this problem, not sure exactly which step solved the problem, but I turned data on, turned my screen to landscape, clicked data usage data cycle, then then could scroll down on the drop down to the bottom were it gave me the option to change data cycle

    You have probably found this out by now, but changing the cycle dates on the phone, only changes what you see in your data usage. NOT what your bill goes off of. Contacting your carrier and switching bill dates and cycle dates is the only way to change that.

    You will get an option to change data usage cycle, if and only if you have turned on the data usage.

    So first turn on data usage then go into data usage under settings you will find the option to change data usage cycle.

    Your mobile data has to be on or else it won't give you the option to change cycle

    I'm running Lollipop 5.0.2 on the Moto G. Got it to finally work after holding the signal icon for the service provider (e.g. O2) and waiting it to open up in settings. From there, I switched on the data usage and then when pressing the button with the predefined dates, a drop down appears with the option for changing the cycle. Hope this helps, and slightly annoyed at the bug :L

    I use TouchWiz (Samsung S6) and i am able to change the cycle date. Remember it is only for Mobile Usage. You do not get to change the cycle date for Wifi Usage.

    If Cycle date is not showing. Close the Data Usage App and close all open app (Just in case) , go back to Data Usage App and this time under the drop-down menu you should see it.

    There must be some bug in the app. I believe this happens when you toggle between Mobile Usage and Wifi Usage tabs.

    Strangely, turning to landscape mode was the vital step for me.

    I bet you have 2 sim card in your phone with only 1 data mobile enable, you must temporary enable data mobile for both sim card, then select data cyle with the same date on sim 1 and sim 2. It should be work, then you can choose data mobile on sim 1 or sim 2, sorry for my bad english
