My data usage is really high compared to my previous account. I’ve never used more than 4gig per month my entire life. Now I am close to six gigs in 2 weeks?? I see allot of other complaints about this. I am not streaming or gaming or using gps. Just some basic google fb CBC news articles.
Another question I have about data usage is some of my devices have a setting that says "treat network as metered connection" and then gives the option to select "automatically" determine. How would a device I use with this setting know whether or not the Wi-Fi hotspot I use is a mobile connection or regular Wi-Fi?
I can’t apply the setting as I don’t know where to find the sm-dm address and activation code for this plan.Possibly it was on the SIM card package but that has been tossed.
I phone you don’t use an app to track your usage you are asked to add the carrier service info into the phones carrier settings so it links the data.
Nothing to do with Apple ID. It’s how you connect your phone plan information to your phone so it can track your usage. I believe if you scan the QR code on the SIM card packet you can linking that way. However I don’t have that package anymore and to entering it manually I can find the required info on my account
@Pappaconnie : But eSIM is irrelevant to this place. I think that's the wrong tree.
Two Xmas's ago all customers at the time were gifted a gig of data. There was a bug where it consumed ridiculously quickly. They fixed it and reset the gift for everybody. Could be something like that. But I doubt it otherwise we'd be hearing a lot more of these stories.
