Airtime & Data


I am being charged for some data use and not for others-why?? I'm on a pay per use plan and only receive photo texts, which APPARENTLY is included in my plan. Airtime-this is minutes on the phone?

Airtime is indeed the minutes you use for calling. With data, it is possible that it is being leaked from other apps and being used when you dont realise it. Picture messages do not count towards your data if included in your plan.

What do you mean when you say you're not charged for some type of data? Are you talking about MMSs? If yes, that's normal, like Allan said, that MMS do not use data. But everything else you're using on your phone (e-mail, Safari, Youtube, facebook, snapchat) will use data.

If you don't want that to happen, close data for all applications.

If you are on prepaid, if you do not have a data booster, then you wont be able to use data, except for MMS, which is included as stated above
