How do I control data usage of individual devices on our plan?
8davidsons

We have a family plan with plenty of data, but consistently and despite warnings, two of my sons use the majority of data and push us beyond our data allotment.

Is there some way to ration data for individual devices on a family plan?  Our data use has ballooned like the federal debt, and I want to force budget compliance!

Thanks!

Thanks for bringing your data usage concern to our attention 8davidsons. As lewisr13 stated, we have Family Base, which does exactly what he mentioned. Here's a link to this service. http://spr.ly/6581BGgcW. Do you have enough data to get through the month? If not then we suggest increasing your plan to avoid data overages. If this is an option that you wish to pursue then it can be done online at www.verizonwireless.com. If you have any additional questions then we're here to help.
