Hi there!

 

I'll be happy to answer this question for you! Smiley Happy

 

Data overage is the data used once you have exceeded your data plan's limit. For example.you mentioned you have the 2GB data plan, which reflects as 2048MB in megabytes. Once you go over that 2048MB of data, you will be charged $10 for an extra 1GB (1024MB) of data but will count as overage. Smiley Happy

 

In short, overage is the same as over usage. Smiley Wink

 

Hope that makes sense! If you have any further questions, lets us know! Smiley Happy

Hi Evandela,

Also, I have a question: so, when a limited account of 2G go over the 1024 mb limit, and is  charged the additional 10$ for another 1GB, is this saying for the biliing cycle only, that they are now in a 3G cycle and they re back within a 'limited' amount of data up to 3Gmax in the same billing cycle?

 

So they just purchased an additional 1G  which puts them back under the overage r.a.d.a.r , per say (but they paid for that extra 'buffer', right?

Nope! But if you go over the 300, then you will be charged $15 for an additional 300MB of data
