low data alert

I'm looking to get data alerts when I've used 50 and 90% of my data. Koodo automatically texted me, is it already set up with pm or is there any way to set it up?

“Public Mobile will notify you via text message when you're close to using all of the data included in your rate plan.  Data notifications indicate how much of your included plan data you have used, so you know when you’re approaching your limit. The default data notifications are set at 75%, 95% and 100% consumption of your data allotments.

Public Mobile already sends text messages about this at 75% and 95% of usage. You can have your phone notify you after a preset amount of data usage, but most phone software is basing the usage on the past month's of usage instead of 30 days which most Publlic Mobile plans are in length.

@bot  Alerts go out at 75% and 95%

Re: low data alert

@bot , if you use an android phone, install data witness app.  It tracks usage on a 30 day cycle.  It was developed by a Public Mobile customer.  You can set warning levels.

Re: low data alert

Good to know!

 

Devices measure by the month but should still be pretty close. In my case my phone measures more than my account, I think because picture texts use data but not against your data usage (which on the surface sounds so incredibly backwards lol)

Re: low data alert

@bot  there's a problem with the low data notifications if you have a data add on, the notification includes this. You will only get the 75 and 95% notifications when all the data including the add on is 75% or 95% used up.

Set your data usage app in your phone, so that it ends on your plan renewal date(change this every renewal date). And set a 75 and 95% warning and a hard limit on 100% of your plan data.

Re: low data alert

@bot   Data warnings go out counting all your data including add ons. So you can easily use all your plan data and the vast majority of your add ons before you get a warning. It's best to set your phone's data warnings and limits to stay on top of your data usage rather than get a nasty surprise of all your data being almost depleted.
