    Hi,

    My daughter has been out of control and using 10-12G a month on her iPhone 5S on Verizon. I finally put my foot down yesterday and set her data limit at 5G. Today she hit the limit and could no longer send or receive message from other users with iPhones. She can send and receive message to my non-iPhone phone and can sent and receive iMessage when connected to Wi-Fi. After some research and discussion with Verizon I find out that iMessage is sent as data not traditional text message. Is there any way to set her phone to receive iMessage when not connected Wi-Fi? I would think that the Apple server would automatically switch the message from an iMessage to and regular text message. Please help. My daughter is harassing me to death to turn the data usage back on.

    Thanks,
    John

    Most I have ever used was 7 GB once. But that was no wifi for one billing cycle.

    Too much YouTube, vine, snapchat, Instagram,etc would be my guess.
