How do you receive a warning text message regarding your voice, txt and data usage?

I am new to Verizon phones, and I would like to know how to monitor and control my usage of voice, txt and data. Is there a place where you can set up an alert? I saw only one place under data usage but not others. Please help.

Its $4.99 a month and u can control ur max data text min etc. u can control when I can and cannot talk on the phone or how many min u use in a time period Block callers etc. its good if u are restricting kids etc. there's a smartphone app bundle includeing many Verizon apps. $10.00 I think the bundle is with 4or5 apps. Call *611 hen u login to the vzw screen name of the person u have the control on or the master screen name and adjust controls.

gina, is the ONLY way to get data warning messages when you get close to your limit through the "Family Base" ? All of the users on this plan are over 18 and dont really need to be monitored. So I would like to do away with the added expense if we can STILL get a warning messages when we are close to our limit?

Alos one more question is the call number blocking attached to this also?
