Check your usage

Learn how to check your data, text message, or minute usage with the options below.


Things to keep in mind:

  • If you reach 80% or 100% of your minutes, texts, or data usage, we will send you a free text message alert at each threshold.
  • Data, text message and minute usage while roaming may take up to 30 days to show on your account and may impact what shows as available.
  • If you change your plan on a day that is not the first day of your billing cycle, your usage won't show what was used before the plan change.
  • For pooled accounts (such as a business account), text usage shows both your usage and the pooled usage combined.
  • Data and text message usage is displayed in Pacific Time (PT).
  • Usage details are available only to customers on monthly postpaid plans. They aren't available to Pay in Advance (Prepaid) accounts.
