Title: METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR MONITORING MOBILE DATA USAGE AMOUNT, MOBILE PHONE, AND ELECTRONIC DEVICE
Abstract:
The invention relates to the technical field of communications. Provided are a method and apparatus for monitoring a mobile data usage amount, a mobile phone, and an electronic device. The method for monitoring a mobile data usage amount comprises: acquiring, at predetermined time intervals, an amount of mobile data used by a SIM card currently in an operating state; determining, according to the mobile data usage amount and a data usage cap specified in a data service package for the SIM card, if there is a need to switch to another SIM card; and if so, issuing a SIM card switching notification first, and then switching to another SIM card after receiving a switching command. The invention can effectively prevent a problem in which an amount of data used by a SIM card in an operating state exceeds a data usage cap specified in a data service package while another SIM card still has an unused data allowance, thereby preventing a user from unnecessary losses. Moreover, the practical needs of a user have been taken into consideration, and switching is performed only after a switching commanded issued by the user has been received, thereby improving user experience.
