SMS when Internet Usage reaches % SUGGESTION


SMS when Internet Usage reaches % SUGGESTION

I was wondering if this is already a feature somewhere I cannot find OR perhaps it SHOULD be a feature now that we are paying for overage on DSL over 150GB.  I typically use 160 in my household, and I always wind up paying extra now.


It would be nice if we could set an SMS to be sent to our cell phone (any carrier) and set the % - ie, 50%, 75% of useage reached, then send us an alert SMS.


I would be fine if I could get U-Verse (the cap is 250), but they say "not in my area", so I am stuck with DSL and it's 150GB cap, paying overages, and would like an alert instead of having to go online, find the usuage page to check it.
