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

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?

OK help me here my koodo Current bill cycle says i used 2 mbs from 500 when i click on it, i...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 help me here my koodo Current bill cycle says i used 2 mbs from 500 when i click on it, it says 1.09 MB and my phone says I used 0.82mbs

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

Maybe post a screen shot for us

Want to stop google from eating data And at the same time make sure i don't mess up the alert t...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

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).
