Most people on this forum are well aware that while data used for pictures is not chargeable, background data used by the phone is. A partial solution is to only switch data on to send or receive mms messages, but the phone still often uses a miniscule amount of data in the background, resulting in a $5 charge at the end of the month. I propose that the PPU Data saver plan be modified so that customers are not charged until their data use exceeds 2 MB. This amount would be large enough that responsible users trying to prevent data use would not accidentally be charged, while still small enough that they would still be charged for any intentional data use such as web browsing.

I agree too. We see a slew of community members each month angry they have a 5$ charge.

Hey Dennis, it's not overlooked. We're still discussing it internally. I intentionally didn't want to give it a status before properly assessing it.

Is data saver still out there?
It isn't, only on old plans, which is too bad
