On Android, there is a data limit and a reset date. If I exceed this limit, then android stops my data until I accept the warning.

This way, it saves me from unwanted, unexpected data bills.

I would like to see the same on Sailfish please.

Please re-open. Not duplicate. VDVsx wants warning. I want the phone to cut data transmission. It is too easy to teather a laptop while on holiday and not look at the phone. Hard limit that forces user permission to exceed please.

How about adding a comment to my duplicate link, saying exactly this?

I did believe that I had. Although I can't find it now. I have to admit that all this Karma/closing posts/etc. is at risk of a fight for kudos which I'm not happy about. I have also read posts where arguments have started in responses and people having their opinions drowned out.

For now I use a data usage app from my mobile service provider.. but agree the way android handles it is the way to do it

Not a duplicate of https://together.jolla.com/question/559/mobile-data-improvements/ ?

Kondou wants a hard limit when he is for example tethering with his laptop.

MsKnight wants a warning which shows up on the phone.

@Kondou that's not a duplicate, because your reference is a groupment of different requirements. and a requirement should be leave alone. otherwise is chaos...
