Call Usage Alerts

I have a phone on the $39 Staff Mobile Cap Plan.  I have already had a bill for charges above the cap due to CALLS not DATA. From what I can tell, you can get data usage alerts but not call usage alerts.  Why is that?  I know I can manually check call usage during the month but I'm intrigued why it happens for one but not the other.  Am I missing something?

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Hi jdmcf, 


Thanks for using Crowd Support. This is an option for Pre Paid but not currently post paid as most have unlimited calls. I will pass this on though. Be best to use the app in the meantime sorry.
