With the Flex Plan, you will receive a text message each time you use 90% of the data within your tier. At that point, you can choose to disable your data for the remainder of the month through self-serve, or simply use more data as you need it. To ensure you are always aware of your data usage, we also send you another text once you enter your next tier of data. Please note the maximum amount of data that can be used in a given month is 5 GB.

With grandfathered plans, you will receive data notifications at 75%, 90% and 100%. Once you reach your data limit, you have the ability to purchase more data.
