***Announcement: Early next week, we’ll be merging the current Fios and Wireless Communities into the all new Verizon Community! Beginning the evening of Sunday 12/4, both Communities will be placed in read-only mode. You’ll still be able to visit the Communities and browse content, but login will be disabled. On the afternoon of Monday 12/5, all users will be able to log into the new Verizon Community. We expect the new Community to be fully functional the morning of Friday 12/9. Additional details can be found in the Announcements board and under Featured Topics!
Data Blockage

I am looking to limit the data to a new line I added. I am allowing 5G then it will be blocked. Will the line be able to use data at a lesser speed after reaching the 5G limit?

Re: Data Blockage

You are looking at needing Family Base. Unless it has been changed, once the device reaches its limit, it will receive no more mobile data but CAN access the internet through WiFi.

Customer Support

TESHA122, you have a great question at hand. Please tell us more, how are you adding the data block to your lines? Are you using the Verizon Smart Family program? If so, you have the option to add a block that will stop all cellular data use for that line, once its data limit has been reached. Here is a link to all you need to know about our Smart Family program.
