$2 plan, data add on - need to be added daily?


$2 plan, data add on - need to be added daily?

I have activated my daughters phone with the $2 a day plan for a trip she’s going on. I want her to have data on these days as well, so I can see through iMessage that her messages are delivered and sent. Do I need to go to the account settings each day and add on the $1 data add on? Does it expire from 24 hours after the add on is purchased or does it start when it’s used the first time and end 24 hours after that starting time?

Re: $2 plan, data add on - need to be added daily?

Hello @Churley,


We can definitely provide you with some more information about our $2 daily cell phone plan. You're not charged the $2 until you make a phone call or send a text message, and it lasts for 24 hours. You can purchase a $1 Day Data Pass, and it will expire at midnight CT on the day after the purchase is made. You can Set up Auto Renew for this add-on as well. Let us know if you have any further questions or concerns.
