Why do I get charged 5$ every couple of days for data, even though I did not reach my 1gb limit tat tat time?


Essentially, I get charged every other day 5$ for going over some kind of arbitrary limits of data (couldn't find a pattern to it).  Why is that?  I have a 1gb data plan, I used 2.5 gig, I was expecting to be charged for 2.5 gb, turns out I'm charged

I think the overage is somewhere between 5-10$ for every 500 Mb you go over. So that's why you're getting charged on different days!
That would be fine, if it was actually 500mb pattern.  Right now, I got charged 35$ for going over from 1gb to 2.5.  Let's assume 3gb (it might be 2501mb, which they would charge an extra 5$).  That would be an extra 1gb or 1.5 gb, which is 2 or 3 times 5$, which would cost me 10/15$, not 35$ extra...

If, however, your overage rate was $5 per 250 MB, then 1.5 GB would be $5 * 6 =$30. If you drew a few more MB, it would be $35, all added as you consumed 250 MB chunks.

Hmm..looking through the details, it would appear that it is indeed 5$/250mb, but it would go contrary to what the salesman told me, which was actually 5$/500mb.  Is there any way to contest the charges and report the salesman?

What is the overage rate on your plan? It would make it easier to determine if there's some sort of wrong charge done on your line.
