I'd like to have an automatic data counter reset each month at a specific date. My data flatrate is reset on the 19th, this would greatly help me manage my available bandwidth better. Since this is a rather trivial but immensely useful feature I'd really like to have it hard-coded in the system instead of a separate app! This could be integrated into the pulley menu of the system data counter easily. Something like "Pulley">"Set reset date for counter" -->opens date picker -->counter is reset each month on that date.

or after 30 days (my data allowance renews every 30 days).

I installed netcounter from the f-droid store (opensource android apps) to have data counter that automatically resets.

Does netcounter count all data or just the one from android? (Since the system counter seems to exclude Alien Dalvik (=android) traffic.)

in my experience it counts both as the NetCounter traffic numbers are slightly higher than the ones shown in sailfish traffic counter. See this other question: https://together.jolla.com/question/24290/is-the-data-counter-including-traffic-generated-by-android-apps-at-all/#post-id-24657

yes its needed to restrict the usage according to mobile data billing plan, a data counter resetting on same date on each successive months.

I agree, this would be awesome. On Nokia N9's meego it was implemented, at least there were apps doing this for us. Apart from resetting on a given day of each month other features would be welcome:
