Usage details

  • T-Mobile sends you a free text message when you reach 80% or 100% of your usage.
  • Data, text and minute usage while roaming may take up to 30 days to appear and may impact what shows as available.
  • If you change your plan on any day but the first day of your billing cycle, any usage before the plan change isn't included.
  • For shared accounts (like a business account), text usage shows both your usage and the pooled usage combined.
  • Data and text usage is displayed in Pacific Time (PT) and typically updates every two hours.
  • Smartphone Mobile HotSpot usage is only available in the T-Mobile app.

Get the most from your data

  • Connect to Wi-Fi when you can. Data used over Wi-Fi doesn't count against your high-speed data plan.
  • Turn off data for apps that you only want to use over Wi-Fi. Most devices have a setting to turn off cellular usage for specific apps.
  • Uninstall any apps or widgets you don't need. Some apps access data even while the screen isn't on.
  • Edit your Facebook settings to turn off automatic video play while connected to cellular data.
  • Monitor your usage - sending or receiving emails uses very little data, while online gaming or streaming videos, TV, and movies uses much more.
  • If you received a message about using 50 GB of data, check out the My data usage page.
