Stress-Free Tips to Keep Your Data Under Control
There’s no doubt data is becoming a defining factor in choosing one’s cell phone plan, but with all the limitations, how do you manage to stay connected? The answer is simple – take control of your data usage. There are many ways to stay within your limits, and it doesn’t even take much effort. Keep your data under control with these stress-free tips:
- Take advantage of WiFi – With WiFi hotspots available almost everywhere, and most likely in your home, you won’t even need to use cellular data. Oftentimes, WiFi gives you faster Internet speeds and cuts down on load times. Not to mention, by using WiFi, you can dramatically increase your battery life.
- Download Data Management Apps – If you are using an Android powered device, there are many apps that allow you to turn cellular data on/off and monitor your usage. Browse through the Google Play store and find one that suits your needs best.
- Keep Track By Accessing Your Online Account – With Page Plus, you have access to an online account which keeps track of your remaining data usage for the month. Access your existing account or register for free here. On the go? Text BAL to 7243 to receive a free text update of your remaining minutes, texts and data usage.
- Add On More Data – If you happen to run out of data or just want more as backup, add a Standard plan PIN (which will act as an extra cash balance on your monthly plan) to your account to be able to use additional data. For example, if you are on the Talk n Text 1200 plan and add a $10 Standard plan PIN to your account, you will get 100 MB more usage for the month since the overage rate on this plan is only 10 cents per MB.
