SteveON:
snuu: It would have been nice if i had been sent some warning messages, but unfortunately nothing!! I'm not saying i didn't use the data, I'm just saying I had no idea I had gone over by so much until I had clocked up 2.5GB...which is double what is on my plan


It's the same as fixed line broadband, it's up to you to manage it. Call *#100#1# simple.


But whenever I've had a broadband plan, I have gotten email notification to say that I am nearly at the end of my data cap. I've now capped it at my plans data allowance so hopefully I wont have this issue again. Could  have been strictly ignorance on my part for not having been on a mobile plan before (always having been a prepaid customer), but now I know. Thanks for your...once again...useless input. SteveON...maybe you should get off this forum...you seem to only be annoying people for the sake of annoying people

I am not intending to be annoying; I am just stating that it is up to you the consumer to manage your account.

Just to be clear - credit limit is an indication of how much 2degrees is prepared to let you go over your plan, and is not a hard limit. Spend control is a hard limit set by the customer which cannot be exceeded (although it can be manually lifted). Two different things. Spend control is not in place by default (unless you set it).
