I have a Verizon Plan with four phones, and 18GB data, and my kids run through it like its nothing.  Is there a way I can give them a specific amount of data per month and once they hit that they have no more to use?

You can add Family Base (usage controls) to your account and have it set up with th elimits you want. If you need assistance with the set up call Verizon Tech Support #8899 from your Verizon cell phone or 8009220204 and ask for tech support

Please be careful.  I don't think the data usage limit function works reliably.  Please see my post for details:

It works. Confirmed on More Everything Plan. Make sure you set your data limits with some buffer. That is if you have 10 GB, do not set the limit right at 10 GB, set it to 9.75 or so. Some data can be reported after block goes into effect and if you are in a data session, the block doesn't start until that session is closed. That is if you are downloading an app and in the middle of your app you reach the limit, the download will continue and then start blocking after. That is the 2 big reasons you need to set a reasonable buffer.
