    AT&T monthly charge advice please!

    Okay ~ I have a monthly fee of $15 that comes out on automatic withdraw monthly. For my 3G service.

    My question is should I not have the automatic w/d set up ~ I think I don't use it all every month, but it renews anyway.

    Can I just use it all up and wait for the notice from AT&T, then buy more? I think I am getting more and still have a lot left.

    I am very sick ~ so this all may not make any sense. Forgive me!

    I believe, when I was paying for the 3G w/at&t, that your data "times out" after 30 days. Whether you have any left over or not. But you can experiment with it. You'll receive "reminders" as your data runs low, or as the month comes to an end. ( no roll-overs ).

    Get well soon!

    Ya know. I think you are right! It is every thirty days...no matter what.

    Oh ~ and thanks for answering my thread! And the well wishes.

    Yeh, I tried "saving up" data just to have in case I needed to travel or something. But they take it back after thirty days so you can't just "sit" on some. If you don't need it for a while, you can start and stop any time you want.

    You're welcome!

    hope you feel better
    according to the ATT website all we have to do is before the 30 days is up call the listed number, (800) 331-0500, or go into a store and cancel and it will stop the auto renewal.
    when you want to use data again,whether next month,next year, whenever, just activate the data like before and cancel if you don't need it like before. no fees for doing so
    hope that helps

    You don't even need to call the store. Your plan can be started/canceled on the iPad in Settings > Cellular Data >> View Account.

    I think we can do all that from the ipad ~ in settings. That is where I have done it.

    But thank you so much for another way!

    Just an update: You can turn off you data plan via the IPad 2 , I choose to purchase a personal hot spot from clear.com the cost is $40.00 a month but the data is unlimited.... The device works with my IPad and PCs

    And I admit, it is good to know that if your iPad dies, or you accidentally leave it while on vacation, or some other random no-iPad-available event occurs you can still turn the plan off and save a bit of money.
