Capping data usage on iPhone 7 once reached limit.


I don't want to potentially go over my limit of data and incur the cost but can't seem to cap the usage on iPhone 7?!!

Hey there,


You can't on any post paid account I thought.. Mind it certainly would be a cool idea but of course it'll kill anything that relies on the data i.e. MMS, iMessage. I guess this stuff takes time like the introduction of the $10 addition as apposed to being charge $2 per MB like the old days. You'll be activally notified up to then over your allotted data package by charging $10 for each 1GB chunk.


You may have to activally monitor your usage via the Optus app and if you're transfer at large chunks at a time allow time between each data session so the usage meter can keep up.

Cheers Dave
