Since I use data for play can I have my data plan turn off automatically once I reach my plan limit? With my authorization of course!

not from Koodo's end, but any android phone running Ice cream sandwich or later has this function built in.

Do you have an Android device? If you do & it's running Android 4.0.x & above you can set a waning & cut off limit in your settings under usage, just move the bars on the grid to set your limits.

a if you have an Android device running an Android version lower than 4.0 then you can download an app called watchdog 3g & set up a warning & cut off limit through the that app.

As a courtesy Koodo will send you 2 text messages when your are at 75% and 95% of the usage if you are not on a flexible data plan, this should be helpful, definitely this will not disable your data, but will advise you that you are about to overuse.

Remember to check once in a while the Self Serve to track your usage, that is the best way to avoid going over.

To add to Camilo's answer, on the pay per use data saver there are no text notifications about data, so daily monitoring is recommended :)

Most app software will cut data when you reach a defined limit.

Remember, an app isn't needed necessarily. If the phone is "running Android 4.0.x & above you can set a waning & cut off limit in your settings under usage" like KID said. However I would take hlouie's advice otherwise.

That's another good 3rd party app and the one I use to use on my tablet.
