My daughter uses this phone. Once she has used her maximum allowed data of 50 mb is it locked from further use till next billing period. If not how does a parent or owner of phone do this?

No it is not locked from further use till next billing.

If it is an android go Settings>Data usage>Limit Mobile Data Usage and set the warning limit and stopping limit.

I would set the stopping limit a few MB below the actual amount of allowed data just to be safe

I also download Koodo app on my phone to check my kids data usage once a while. Or log into self serve to check it. If it getting close to their allotted amount, I tell them to be cautious.

Reminder that the Self Serve app doesn't update immediately and will usually update it's data after about a few hours(?).
