Saving Data


These days it’s easy over spend on data or reach your data limit without even realising it. Just making use of a few practical tips can help you save your data for the things you really love doing.

  • Turn off Automatic Updates and Syncing

    In your settings menu simply disable automatic updates for all your apps. Make sure all emails and chat apps are not set to automatically sync or download content. If this function isn’t turned off your apps will constantly refresh and cost you more data.

  • Disable Autoplay on Social Media

    Most of these platforms already use a lot of data but playing videos only increases your consumption. By disabling autoplay you are limiting downloads and therefore your data usage.

  • Remove Unused Apps

    Widgets and apps constantly update with new information even when you’re not using them. By removing them from your home screen you can limited any unnecessary consumption.
  • Know Your Data Usage

    By knowing your regular usage you can be aware when something isn’t right. You can use the My Vodacom App to keep track of your monthly data usage or check the total amount of cellular data used by accessing your phone’s settings. This also lets you buy the correct bundles for your needs which will save you from being caught without any data.
