About the charge of additional data

okay so I exceed my monthly data limit and is informed that ATT's gonna charge me $15 for additional 200MB (I have the minimum data plan), and my question is whether ATT charges the fee per additional 1MB or just the $15 as long as I don't exceed it again?

 

thx very much.

The $15 is for another 200MB.  If you use more than that this month, you will be charged another $15 for another additional 200MB.  This will continue until your monthly billing cycle restarts. 

 

The best thing for you to do now is to switch to the DataPro plan for $25, and back date it to the beginning of this billing cycle in your OLAM.  As it is now, you are spending at least $30 for at least 400 MB.  You save $5 with my suggestion, and probably won't go over again this month, based on your usage.  You can switch back to DataPlus for your next billing cycle.

Yes, from the wording of your first post, it sounds like you have already been billed the additional $15 for a total of 400MB.
