Samsung Galaxy S6 Change period of data used by mobile Internet

The Samsung Galaxy S6 offers the possibility via Menu --> Settings --> "data usage" to monitor the data usage of your mobile Internet connection. So you can always check which app has consumed data volume of your mobile data tariff. This function is especially useful if you have a contract with a limited amount of data. However it is so that your contract usually does not run from the first day of a month, but starts somewhere in the middle.
No problem, you can even change the data usage cycle in Android. Now, however, the following problem can occur with your Samsung Galaxy S6:

The data usage cycle cannot be changed on your Samsung Galaxy S6.

If you also have this problem, then we would like to show you a trick on how to change the cycle of the mobile data consumption. The function has been implemented somewhat cumbersome.

How to change the Data usage cycle on the Samsung Galaxy S6:

Open on your Samsung Galaxy S6 the menu and then the settings. Select here the button "data usage". You can now tap on the date or the small arrow. There is no change possible. Now the trick:

(Wi-Fi must be disabled) Set a mark for "Mobile data connection". If you see the sign for the mobile data connection in the status bar, tap once on the Back button so that you find yourself back in the settings. Tap again on the button "data usage" and then again on the date. Voila, a new box will appear with „change cycle". You can now change the data usage cycle for the mobile data log on your Samsung Galaxy S6.
We hope that you can now change the data usage cycle for the mobile data on your Samsung Galaxy S6.
