Can I buy a temporary data top up?

I have a monthly voice/data plan, and I have already surpassed my data limit with a couple of weeks to go in my billing cycle. Is there a way I can add on another 1GB for the month and pay a flat rate? I've already received a message saying that I have incurred an additional $10 in data charges. I thought it might be cheaper to top up (or add on?) another 1GB for this billing period. Thoughts?

Nope, your overage rate is your top up

Only Prepaid permits those Data Add-Ons that never expire

If your finding that this is a common occurrence, I would suggest just taking a look at changing to a plan that includes more data. Data overage isn't a good deal at all if your using it all the time. If your using it often, I can pretty much guarantee that its cheaper to just pick a plan that has more data.
