How do I limit Data usage?

My family shares 15 gb of data between 5 phones. My daughter uses more than 10 of those some months. Can I set a data limit on each device?

Lisa518,

Making sure we get the data usage under control is a must. I can definitely relate as I have a 17 year old son who likes to gobble up our data usage. Help has arrived & so glad that you reached out to us here! I use the feature called FamilyBase that we have. It is awesome. You set data limits for each line on the account or if you just want to set it up for your daughter’s line that is fine too. It’s pretty easy to set up! The first month is free & after that it is $4.99. (That is for the entire account.) Please see these links for FamilyBase information http://vz.to/1PHelKg & set up steps http://vz.to/1OjMrWU.

Verizon Family Base is your answer.  Other than that service, you'll need to take the phone away.

Been there

You can also put a warning and cap in the settings of her android phone.

Teach her to limit her data use and set a clear consequence for going over and FOLLOW THROUGH if she does.

Her android lists the apps that are using data.  That information will help her limit her use on certain applications.

Is there no way to do this for free? I spend enough money every month for 5 lines and in order to limit data I need to spend another $5 a month.
