  Think of data as being kind of like gas: it helps get you where you want to go online. You use some each time you grab email, surf the Web or download an app. But it’s not limitless, and each thing you do online brings you closer to your monthly usage limit of your Rogers Internet and/or your device’s data plan. To avoid going over your limit, get in the habit of checking your usage every once in a while via   MyRogers™ – and, if necessary, increasing your plan. Rogers has made doing both of those things super easy! Here are step-by-step instructions.     To check your internet usage for postpaid users:   From your desktop:   Log in to your   MyRogers   account (or   register   for one if you don’t have one already). Click   Account Overview. Under the heading   My Home Services, you’ll see a box that says   Internet. Under it, you’ll see the words   My Usage & Details. Click that! A monthly-usage progress bar indicates your total available usage, your used data and your remaining usage details. For a more detailed rundown, click   Usage Details, located beside the progress bar.     From your smartphone or tablet:   Download and install the   MyRogers   app   from your device’s app store. It’s available via   Google Play, the   Apple App Store   and   BlackBerry World. Sign in with your   MyRogers   account info (or   register   for an account if you don’t have one already). Under   Home Services, tap   Internet. A monthly-usage progress bar indicates your total available usage, your used data and your remaining usage details.     To check your wireless smartphone or tablet data usage  for postpaid users :   From your desktop:   Log in to your   MyRogers   account (or   register   for one if you don’t have one already). Click   Account Info. Under the heading   My Mobile Services, you’ll see a box containing the word Wireless, plus the phone number associated with your wireless account. Under it, you’ll see the words   My Usage & Details. Click that! Under   My Usage, click   Data. A monthly-usage progress bar indicates your total available usage, your used data and your remaining usage details.     From your smartphone or tablet:   Download and install the   MyRogers   app   from your device’s app store. It’s available via   Google Play   and the   Apple App Store. Sign in with your   MyRogers   account info. (If you’re on the Rogers network, you don’t need to sign in to view your own usage.) Under   Wireless Services, tap your cell-phone number. Under   Usage, tap   Data. A monthly-usage progress bar indicates your total available usage, your used data and your remaining usage details.   If you find that you’re regularly nearing or surpassing your data limit, you might want to upgrade your plan.

  The Benefits of Your Data Plan and the Things you need to know   Having a data plan means you are connected wherever you happen to be. You can use your phone or tablet as a map and never get lost again. Instantly receive updates and pictures from your family about important events that you can’t attend in person. Download apps to find nearby restaurants and shops. Or use those same apps to check reviews and find out what best suits you.   Think of data as being kind of like gas: it helps get you where you want to go online. You use some each time you grab email, surf the Web or download an app. But it’s not limitless. And if you use it all up, you’ll need to pay for more. Make sure you know what’s included in your plan. You can find out by logging into your   MyRogers   account online, or on your phone with the Rogers   My Account app. Knowing how much data you have in your bucket will help you avoid overage fees – charges for using more than your allotted amount. If you find you need more data, you can adjust your plan to keep from going over.                                                                               Quick Tips to Manage your Data   Track and review your usage regularly. You can always check your data usage through your   MyRogersaccount online, or right on your phone with the Rogers   My Account app. Don’t have a   MyRogers   account already set up?   Different activities use different amounts of data. Not all online activities consume data equally. Text emails use very little data, but adding pictures – which can be several megabytes in size each – can greatly increase email data consumption. Online video tends eats up a lot of data, too, as can streaming radio for prolonged periods. If you plan to regularly use services like these, ensure you have a big enough data bucket. Check out the   Rogers Plan Builder   to see how much data certain tasks take.     Use Wi-Fi when you can. Your phone uses no wireless data when you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network, like the one you probably have at home. Planning to download bigger apps, videos, pictures and music when you’re connected to the internet via Wi-Fi can play a significant role in ensuring you don’t exceed your monthly data allowance.   Manage your automatic updates and push notifications. You can often adjust the frequency of these updates, or even quality settings that affect file sizes. Consider adjusting your settings for updates to: Online photo albums or cloud storage that automatically back up files or upload photos taken. Podcasts and Web feeds that automatically download any new files in the series to your device. Push notifications for apps you use less often, which can be turned off. Email settings that can be set to   Pull   instead of   Push   so that your inbox refreshes manually only when you want it to. You can also adjust settings for email sizes and attachments. Emails with large attachments that get stuck in your outbox may be resent repeatedly, incurring usage each time.   Shut down background Apps you’re not using. Chances are good you’ve got apps open on your smartphone that you don’t even know about. Often, they run in the background to keep you up to date on software upgrades and so on. Left unchecked though, these apps can eat up a sizable serving of your monthly data-plan allowance for wireless internet. If in doubt, shut ‘em down!   Here’s how: On your Android device, select   Settings, then   Application Manager. Select the app you want to disable and press   Force Stop. On some Android devices, you can also view all your running apps by pressing the multitasking   softkey, or pressing and holding the   Menu   key. Swipe the app to the right to close it. On your iPhone, double-tap the   Home button   to see all running apps. Tap and hold an app then tap the   red X   to close apps you’re not using. On your Windows Phone 8 device, long press on the   Back softkey. Tap the app you want to quit from the list, then tap the   Back   key until you get to your home screen. On your BlackBerry running OS 6 or 7, press and hold the   BlackBerry   button until the   Application Switchercomes up. This shows you all the apps currently running on your device. Scroll to the app you’d like to close, and select   Exit/Close. If you have a BlackBerry 10, running apps are visible on the   Running Apps   pane. To access it while in an app, swipe upwards from the BlackBerry brand at the bottom. To close a running app, select the   X   at the bottom right corner of the app you want to close.
