There are 2 types of data-only plans available:
You can check your unbilled monthly data use for your Mobile Broadband device through the following options:
Some of the apps or activities that can lead to high data usage are:
Yes, we send text messages to your Mobile Broadband device, which you can view by selecting the Text Messaging tab in VZAccess Manager. These messages will appear when your usage reaches 50%, 75%, 90% and 100% of your monthly data allowance.
However, until the beginning of your first full bill cycle for your 4G LTE Mobile Broadband service, there will be a time lag that can be as long as 8 hours between the end of a data session and the point at which your data usage for that session is applied to your account. Therefore, it’s possible that you may exceed your usage allowance before receiving a text message.
If you want to set different thresholds and/or specify the phone numbers and email addresses where alerts will be sent, you can do this on the Usage Alerts page in My Verizon.
Note: If you have a business account, you can manage your alerts in My Business Account or Verizon Enterprise Center.
Yes, downloads for computer OS updates, anti-virus and other software updates will count against your data allowance. You may want to change your computer settings so these updates won’t automatically download until you approve the download.Back to top
