How do I restrict my teenager's data usage?
vblechle

I share data with my teenagers.  The last three months we've gone over our data allowance.  I need to find a way to restrict/limit their data when they reach a certain amount.  They need cut off.  How?

imnotwonderwoman and vblechle sounds like you could both benefit from FamilyBase. if you add it from the website you get the first 30 days and you can set data limits on all lines if needed

edit: it's $5 a month after the first 30 days. if you're already over I'd suggest you contact customer care at 800-922-0204 to see if maybe increasing the plan as a one time measure would decrease the overall cost to you by avoiding overage

Following.  My son has used 52% of our allowance, with 11 days left in our cycle.

Family Base is a great way to restrict data usage as well as several other restrictions you may be interested in. 5.00 a month is definitely worth it.
