    1.Who are the users?
    In India most of the users access internet through mobile data rather than Wi-Fi. The data limits are mostly daily basis (Ex: 1.4 GB/Day). Also, in some cases users buy data packs which have 28 days of validity. So there are variations in the billing cycle/validity of the data packs.

    2.What is the proposed function?
    User should be able to select the number of day(s)/months per billing cycle. In Billing Cycle screen an option of Billing Frequency should be added. This frequency can either be set 'x' number of days or months, where x can be selected by user.

    3.What is the user value?
    In Indian context, when the daily data limit is exhausted, the telecom service provider charge a hefty amount for per KB uses. If the user is able to set daily or customized billing frequency. It would save him a lot of money.

    4.If there are existing comparable functions in the smartphone industry, how is your proposed feature superior?
    Google has an app Datally to set such daily limits. But including such feature in the OS itself will be user friendly.

    User flow:
    • Settings -- WiFi & Internet --Data Usage -- Billing Cycle -- (An option of Billing Frequency above Billing Cycle will be provided)
    • Selecting Billing Frequency will pop-up a window within the same screen to chose between Days and Months through radio buttons. These options will have counters next to them to increase/decrease the number.
    • If Days is selected the Billing Cycle option will show "Billing cycle starts at 00:00 hours everyday" which can be modified just like the day of the month is modified in existing feature. See uploaded file for details.
