Is it possible to have the data blocked automatically only when it reaches the maximum of your monthly plan?


I am trying to find a way to have the "data block" applied automatically once the maximum allowed data is consumed on a monthly plan so that no additional fees will incur.
Is this possible?
If so, this can be done on the self service URL?

Hi Marc,

Koodo does not offer that service. Depending on your phone though you can set a data block so that it turns data off once it passes a pre-determined limit. On most android phones these steps will work: 

Go to: Settings --> Data Usage.

From here you can turn on a mobile data limit. Make sure yo know what day your billing cycle resets in order to have better accuracy in this feature.

Now, you can set the limit and warning message. Note: Consider putting the limit slightly under your actual Koodo limit as some times the phone will not track a few mb's. Once your device hits the data limit, then the phone will turn off data usage. Once the device hits the warning, you will see a notification (Similar to a text message) telling you that you are about to pass your limit.

If memory serves, they are actually doing a 100% data block on the current $30 plan if people activate on it. So with that plan you have 100mb of data, and once you hit the 100mb it cuts you off and asks you what you want to do.

That's minutes only. It doesn't apply to data AFAIK.

Should also be data as per my understanding.

Hi there, Mark is right! There is an automatic block on data on this specific plan. It doesn't apply on calls though, Jonathan 🙂 Thank you both!

Oh, I guess it's the other way around. I thought it was minutes only.

PC Mobile postpaid has had this since it's launch a couple of years ago and I've been wondering if anyone else is going to do it...
Most modern phones can block data if a set limit is exceeded

New plans have maximum overages now as per the new Wireless Code of Canada
