    They are if you let your data keep going over. Ultimately it's up to the individual to follow their data as it's being counted by the carrier.

    There are apps like DataMan Next that tracks your usage allegedly in realtime. It worked well for me and was pretty accurate when I tested it.

    I've tried using that app and it doesn't give me accurate usage for some reason. My carrier usage is always higher than what the app shows :/

    Who is your carrier? I have verizon and they let me know when I'm at certain increments set by me.

    Verizon alerts at 50%, 75% and 90% data usage. But I too use data intensive apps and other usage for wifi. When away from wifi, I do little other than talking or a few texts.

    I wish my carrier let me know that often... I only get a text at 90% data usage...

    This was one of those features I liked with android but I found myself hardly using it and forgetting. There was no real interaction with the user it was just there and you had to check it,..I don't recall a notification as such..

    But for some people it's a pain to have to manually check their data. It is pretty convenient.

    It's right there in the carrier app.

    Does the carrier app automatically notify you when you're running out of data?

    Depends the carrier. My point was that all it takes is a single tap on an app icon.

    Verizon sends me a text message with the data usage. It's one reason I use the Do Not Disturb feature. Some of those data alerts came at 3:00 am. But it also shows in the app and the MyVerizon online site.

    I'm on T-Mobile with 5GB per month, one of the reasons I chose them is that there is no cap, just slowed speed. But, as an option, I can buy 500MB for the day or 1GB for the week ($10) in case I need it.

    Coverage is great, speed is blazing fast and the price is right.

    Naa, a waste if finger muscle to tap the icon to check my data.

    I still have an unlimited data plan, so data caps are of no interest to me. ( Just thought I'd throw that in your guys face)

    My daughter received a text from AT&T on a Sunday afternoon that she had reached 75% of her data limit. Thirty minutes later she received a text from AT&T telling her she had exceeded her data limit. Too little too late and delayed... I would like to have an app that keeps track in real time or a data cap that can be implemented on the device. I DO NOT trust the carriers.

    That's exactly what I use. Just a tap away. Same tap people make hundreds of times a day to look at Facebook, Instagram, and SnapCrap

    My problem stems from 2 others on my Verizon service. My 27 yr old son in particular. He uses a lot more data than the rest of us, even though he has wifi. So a text alert is convenient. The amount used can change quickly and at any time. I do check my Verizon app. But the text is a good heads up, especially if it's at 90%.

    Yeah, that is understandable. I'm considering adding my girlfriend to my 10GB plan when she upgrades to the iPhone 6, but part of me doesn't want to because I like the freedom of using those 10 gigs to just myself.
