Data overage charges

If my daughter goes over her data limit, will there be overage charges? She is on autopay?

As @hairbag1 mentions the data stops. Once she reaches the limit for text/data/talk minutes in her plan she won't be able use the feature where the limit has been reached.  Public Mobile has no pay-per-use charges; everything must be prepaid, which is great for teens that can use data/text/talk like it grows on trees, haha.

 

She/you can then purchase an add-on for talk minutes and data; there are currently no text add-ons.

There are no data overages with PM. You can only use what you have paid for...then data stops when iit's been exhausted. Welcome to Public Mobile.

Just to supplement the answer above - since data is cut off once the allotment is used up, you may consider buying a data block just in case so data is still available, but still control the spending.  If she uses up the data block ($30 for 1GB) often, then you can consider whether to upgrade her plan. (Or talk to her about her usage Smiley Happy)

Re: Data overage charges

This is the advantage of pre-paid; use of what you got and you can't be charged more.

 

The disadvantage is that your service may get interrupted; however, I prefer this, than seeing a $5k bill at the end of the month.
