  1. I have done all this but still it’s not working the data bundles are still getting drained drastically .is there another way please?

  2. Running Android v. 9 on a Samsung Galaxy 7. Under Settings, there is no “Network & Internet” option.

    • You can find under settings > Apps > All apps > Select app you want to disable background data on S7 > Menu icon at upper right corner > Show system apps > Force stop app

      It will disable app background data or stop running apps that unnecessary in your S7 & S7 Edge.
