Is there a notification that the Data usage is almost gone?

If the Data usage is 50% or 75%, is there a notification from PM?

Wow! That is good to know! Thanks for pointing it out!

I was referring to my post about NOT getting a notification from an add-on. I did. I was wrong before. One still gets notifications from low plan counters but I was mistaken about not with add-ons.

I'm sure it's something I read somewhere here. Oh well.

Yes I was all wet. I have received a text of 75% consumed of the 200mb data add-on.

And I got a 40 minutes used (80%) of the 50 minutes notification text (but that's not an add-on per se).

Here's the 95% data used text I received. You don't receive anything else beyond that. When your data is used up, cellular data just stops working.

I have no evidence to back up my comment. Just thinking that that's what I've read around. I seem to think I've read that even on plans, people weren't getting notifications. But I'm not going looking.

Sorry for any confusion.

For plan data you should get a text at 75 and 95.

For add-on data...none.


Back when I was on talk&text and the add-on was the only data I needed, I got the 75% and 95% warning texts.

 

The OP could also set the phone's data warning. Or install an app like Data Witness.

 

 


Oh. Well.. Blast & darn. Maybe more incorrect documentation or others reporting that isn't matching real world experience.

We laugh and yet C'MON shouldn't it be consistent and universal?! Oh. Wait. We're talking PM here. And we laughed and laughed. Sigh.

Yes I think I have received mine at 75%, 90% (maybe can't remember) and 95%
