What is your question? Do you have a plan with data?

You can either upgrade to a plan with more data or if on a SFD plan, can purchase a data top up, or you can cruise on the pay per use data rates.

J Doyle, for questions like that it is better to create a new thread. However to answer your question, make sure you disable data for any app you don't need to use data for. I personally downloaded the app Datally for that (by Google).

There should be an option under your cellular settings to specify which apps can access cellular data. Just turn off Google Play Store updates.

So are you trying to stop google play from using data or you want to stop emergency alerts?

To stop emergency alerts, see here

No I guess it's going to use data when my phone isn't being used as long as I have data on some apps like google service can't be stoped even if blocked .

I was just in town for a hour only on data and google used 0.57 mbs with the phone sleeping

Just hoping 500mbs will last me until next month where it maybe running 2 to 3 plus mbs auto sitting idil

If you do not have enough data, just turn off your data when you are not using it.

Go to your data usage and click on Google play services.  What services are using data?

From there you can find the root cause and deal with that specific service.

Maybe post a screen shot for us

These numbers are practically rounding errors. You bill will report the next whole MB, your Account to the nearest 10 KB. Your phone may not count all the data consumed - only those that are used by apps. No overhead, no retries. Koodo will bill you to the nearest whole MB, based onto Account consumption.

Ok so I set my koodo account to stop my data at 100% used will that stop it right on 500 mbs
So I won't be billed for over useing it or will it keep going and add 100 mbs more and over bill me $7?

Your data will be stopped at 500 Mb. You will then be sent a text offering to buy more data or leave it stopped.
