Monitor your data usage

Just navigate to the Settings menu on your smartphone, tap on the Data Usage option and there you go!

Here you will be presented with graphs that show your data usage pattern. If you have multiple SIM cards, it will also show you the data usage patterns for the different SIM cards and Wi-Fi, separately.
