Not with rogers wireless (too expensive), but I wonder if it is something like Koodo's Shock-free data where they send you alerts, then pause your data when you reach your limit, so you don’t end up with a nasty bill.
Great news! This stuff is long time comming, and everyone needs to learn that its there.. for groups of people on ShareEverything plans, or even just a single person.
This Appears to be active on the MyRogers web interface, iOS, i would assume on Android (but cant confirm myself)
One thing that i would like to see added as well... would be AUTOMATIC cuttoffs.
That you can say " At 1gb used on this kids line, automatically turn the data off"
Not perfect, but a BIG upgrade in terms of managability.
Thanks for a great post @Gdkitty!
Now managing your Share Everything plan is easier with Data Manager! Users on the plan will now get notification when data limits are reached.
To learn more check out rogers.com/data
Useless without the automatic cutoff. Most phones can already be setup to limit or notify. Problem is it can be ignored or turned off.
Add data to your shared plan (e.g., $15 for 1GB) and you will no longer have to worry about data used by these shared lines!!!! (as they will no longer have access to internet!!!!). Thanks Rogers!...
I agree.. it need an auto cuttoff.
BUT at least, it does give some control to the parrents.
Prior to this.. you really couldnt do anything bar taking the phone away. (or taking it and turning the data off, etc.. but then they could just turn back on?)
This allows control from the back end to turn it off
