Tools for Monitoring Usage

There are 5 ways to monitor your voice, messaging and data usage:

  • Usage Alerts -- A free online service that helps you monitor your usage with text messages sent directly to your mobile device.

  • My Verizon Usage Meters -- A free web service for monitoring your usage.

  • Data Utilization Tool -- A free tool for monitoring how your data is used.

  • #MIN and #DATA -- A free automated phone service that provides usage information to you over the phone.

  • Verizon FamilyBase™ -- A service that you can use to monitor the activity of each device on your account, set usage limits for each device and help your children understand how to use their devices responsibly and safely.

Note: If you’re concerned about overages, the new Verizon Plan has unlimited talk and text, and it also includes Carryover Data and Safety Mode to help you avoid unexpected charges.

If you'd like to increase your monthly allowance at any time, you can change your plan in My Verizon.


Usage Alerts

Usage alerts are free and will automatically be sent to you by text message and email (if you provide a valid email address).

  • Alerts for the new Verizon Plan, The Verizon Plan and The MORE Everything® Plan: Alerts will be sent to all lines that are sharing when your account has 50%, 25%, 10% and 0% of your monthly allowance left. Additional alerts will be sent at 10% of each overage allowance.

  • Individual Data Alerts: If you have usage based data pricing (i.e., a certain amount of data allotted to each line), the alerts will be sent to the Account Owner and the individual line at 50%, 75%, 90% and 100% of the monthly domestic allowance. Additional alerts will be sent at 90% of each overage allowance.

  • Voice and Messaging Alerts: If you don't have unlimited minutes or messaging, alerts will be sent when you reach 75%, 90%, 100% and 105% of your monthly domestic allowance.

    Account Owners can also add up to 3 additional Verizon Wireless mobile numbers to receive text alerts and up to 3 additional email addresses to receive alerts.

  • International Welcome Text Messages: Upon arrival at your international destination, you'll receive welcome text messages. These free messages provide important information such as standard rates for voice, data and text messaging, as well as details on how to contact our 24/7 International Support team.

  • International Roaming Monitor Messages: If you're using data globally, we'll send you a notification (by text message and email, if available) before you incur a significant overage charge.

    Note: If your line uses static IP or private network solutions, it won't be visible to the system we use to manage our data Usage Alerts. The data it uses won't be calculated as part of your account's data usage, so you may receive alerts that under-report your actual data usage. If you have the new Verizon Plan, The Verizon Plan or The MORE Everything Plan, you'll receive alerts based only on the data used by the lines without these services.

How to Get It

Usage Alerts are included with all usage-based plans; no initial setup is required.

How to Use It

To modify the frequency of Usage Alerts:

  1. Go to the Usage Alerts page in My Verizon.

  2. If you have multiple devices eligible for Usage Alerts, select the line you'd like to manage.

    Note: If a line shares minutes, messages or data, you only need to set the threshold on one line.

  3. Review and select the alert notifications you want to receive.

    Note: When a marker has a check mark in it, that means the alert is turned on.

  4. Click Save alert settingsx.

  5. Click OK.

You've successfully modified your Usage Alerts.
