My son has a plan with virgin for 1Gb data per month for a set fee. Is it possible for the data provider (in this case Virgin) to prevent data access once this limit has been reached on a month by month basis. I realize that a data limit can be set on the handset but this is easily overridden by the user (my son). I simply want to block data above and beyond 1Gb.
I had the same question months ago. It seems Virgin don't do this now although I have friends who've limited their data on their kids' phones a couple of years ago. Seems Virgin don't do this now ( maybe they were losing too much cash this way)
i check my son's data usage every few days online & as soon as he gets to 90% I take the phone off him until the refresh date. He's aware of this & since the first month he's never been over the limit. He's 13 & has been surprisingly responsible since we agreed this plan. He keeps his data turned off at all times & uses wifi whenever possible & only turns data on when absolutely necessary. He gets quite close at the end of the month.
