Unlimited data plans have been the popular trend of late. However, not everyone has been able to take advantage of them. There is a good chance that you still have a strict limit on the amount of data you can use every four weeks, and going over that limit is something that you don't want to do.

Going over your allowed data threshold can mean that you have your data speeds throttled, face big fees and even have your data cut off until the billing cycle ends. We love our data and it's no secret.

On average, an American smartphone user eats up about 1.8 gigabytes of non-Wi-Fi data every month. This could be from surfing the internet, checking emails, playing games, listening to music and a number of other things that we do on our phones every day.

If you're one of the millions of Americans who have a newer phone with more advanced capabilities, you are even more likely to burn through your data plan.

Lucky for you, there are a few steps you can take to cut your data usage dramatically and save you from going over your monthly limit.
