Have you been wrongly charged or billed data overage fees or charges by your wireless, mobile or cell phone carrier?  Have you been charged too much for going over your allowed data usage allowance?  Have you been billed for data you never knowingly used?

Data overage occurs when a phone subscriber uses more data than is included in their wireless data plan.  A data overage charge or data overage fee refers to the amount that your mobile data provider (i.e., wireless service provider or cell phone company) bills for going over a specified or predetermined data allotment, data allowance or data cap.

Billing for data-overage often depends on who your cell phone carrier is and what your data plan is.  Carriers often calculate and bill data usage based on the amount of data that is sent or received through the data carrier’s network, typically in increments of kilobytes (KB), megabytes (MB), or gigabytes (GB).   Data overages are often billed using the cost per megabyte MB or gigabyte of a particular data plan (i.e., $2 per 1MB of data used, or $15 per 1GB of data usage, etc.).  Some data plans don’t charge for data overages, but instead may throttle, reduce or limit the speed of data download or upload or internet connection after the data allowance is exceeded.

Data usage can include not only internet usage such as visiting a website on your cell phone or wireless device, but also may include instant messaging, games, applications, wallpapers, ringtones, ringback tones, streaming audio, streaming video, uploads and downloads, and other data that is transferred to or from a wireless device during a particular billing cycle.

    I have had a Verizon Home Fusion account for 2+ years, the 40GB plan, rarely if ever do we run over. We don’t stream movies, music or any of the fun stuff. Suddenly into the first 1-1/2 week of a new billing cycle I start getting notices of excessive usage. First, the alert messages don’t match the usage shown on the website, and they turned in a trouble ticket, but some make excuses, none really explain what I was seeing. Second, regardless of that, every couple of days I was see huge spikes in data usage. I understand how it works, have been doing this for years. The billing cycle ended with us being over by 11 GB @ $15.00 GB. I’ve done EVERYTHING possible to try to track down, what on our side, might be doing this. Can’t find a thing, zero. It wasn’t just one day, it has been numerous days, all different times and amounts. Something stinks.
