What is the difference between Nationwide data and Datasaver?
My Nationwide data is currently at 310 out of 400 MB, but my datasaver is sitting at 333MB un-used (I think). Will datasaver kick in once my other ones reaches 400MB?

If you're talking about the pay per use data saver, yes it will kick in once you use up your current data.

That would be the overage fees Daniel, not the Data Saver... Data Saver is only available on Talk&Text plans which have no data bucket to begin with.

They are not related Sarah. Nationwide simply means that your data can be used anywhere within Canada, nothing less, nothing more.

As for Datasaver, it's the name for Pay-per-Use data available with Talk&Text plans. You either have a data allowance coupled with overages if you go over when you're on a Data plan, or you Pay-per-Use when on a Talk&Text plan, not both.

What is the name (and price) of your current plan?

Is this what is displayed on your self serve? Can you post a screen shot of this (with all personal info scrubbed out of course)?

Are you sure 310/400 is mb and not mins?
