How to Turn Off Cellular Data on the Samsung Galaxy On5

Smartphones and the functions that they are capable of are pretty impressive. Your phone can perform a lot of tasks that a desktop computer would struggle with, even just a few years ago, and it can do these things from almost anywhere you go.

Unfortunately, connecting to the Internet on a cellular network requires you to use cellular data, and most plans only give you a small amount of data each month.

If you are near or over your monthly cellular data limit, then you might decide to turn off cellular data on your Galaxy On5 to prevent any overage charges from occurring.

Our guide below will show you where to find the setting that can completely disable cellular data usage on your device.
